MADISON, Wis. - A decision on whether to put on hold a judge's ruling restoring major parts of Wisconsin's collective bargaining law has been delayed.
Dane County District Judge Juan Colas on Friday gave those challenging the law passed by Gov. Scott Walker and Republicans last year until Tuesday to file additional arguments. Colas says in the order that this will delay him acting on the state's request that he put his original decision on hold while it is appealed.
Colas blames the delay on the state because it made new arguments in a previous round of filings.
The Madison teachers union and the Milwaukee city employees union, which brought the lawsuit, argue they should be allowed to respond to those arguments.
The judge on Friday agreed.
