In a ruling last week that caught many by surprise, a state court judge ruled the Wisconsin right-to-work law violated the state constitution. Dane County Court Judge William Foust agreed with the organized labor plaintiffs that the right to work law was an illegal taking of union funds by the government without compensation. Not surprisingly, the Wisconsin Attorney General immediately promised to appeal the ruling and predicted it would be overturned. Two years ago, the Indiana Supreme Court rejected two almost identical challenges to right-to-work. This law was signed by Governor Scott Walker last year as he prepared to campaign for the Republican nomination for President. Twenty-four other states have enacted right-to-work laws without judicial difficulty.
