Judge refuses to dismiss right-to-work lawsuit

An Ingham County judge has refused to dismiss a lawsuit that says Michigan's right-to-work law should be struck down because people were locked out of the Capitol for hours while the measure was debated in December.

Circuit Judge William Collette on Wednesday said plaintiffs in the case have a "real uphill battle" but should be allowed to depose witnesses and collect evidence.

He ruled after hearing arguments from the state attorney general's office and the American Civil Liberties Union of Michigan on whether the case should be tossed.

Unions and others say the law should be invalidated because the Open Meetings Act was violated. The state says people already inside the Capitol were allowed to stay, and the public had access to the proceedings on TV and through media coverage.

R U kidding me! These Union thugs were crawling all over our State Capital rippin' down tents and punching people in the face. They were inside the Capital rotunda chanting their DNC talking points hence, the 200+ State Police troopers assigned to protect our representatives. This is why you need to pay attention with whom is voted or appointed on our Courts.
