Walker's anti-union law gutted.... it seems

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The smoke has yet to clear from the Wisconsin state attorney general's decision last week not to appeal a court ruling that gutted most of Gov. Scott Walker's anti-union law. You know, the one that triggered the month-long uprising in Madison.
Here's what happened: First, the Wisconsin state Court of Appeals upheld a ruling that struck down as unconstitutional parts of Walker's law, known as Act 10, at least for now. A few days later, state Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen said he wouldn't appeal that ruling. Instead, he said he'd wait for the court to rule on the merits of the bill.
It's not clear where that leaves Wisconsin public employee unions. The lawsuit was brought by the Madison teachers union and Public Employees Local 91, representing Milwaukee public workers. Van Hollen says the appeals court ruling only applies to those two unions.
