Madison attorney Lester Pines has now beaten the Walker administration on both the Voter ID law (injunction won on behalf of the League of Wisconsin Women Voters) and now on Act 10, so the advice he's offering today free of charge is certainly worth taking:
Gov. Scott Walker - who wrote the collective bargaining limits and withstood a recall this summer largely inspired by them - issued a statement Friday calling [Act 10 case Judge Juan] Colas a "liberal activist..."And was Walker's complaint predictable?
[Labor plaintiff Attorney Lester Pines said Walker and others should not be demeaning judges with name calling...
"When a case is before judges, it's really not a good idea to insult the judge. First of all, it's just bad manners. But secondly, from a tactical point of view, when someone still has issues before him or her, why would you insult that person?..."
Representatives of Walker couldn't immediately be reached for comment Saturday.
Walker's Act 10 struck down; cue the "activist judge" wailing
