Wisconsin union busters foiled

This is also kind of old news but to the extent I've been on the grid, I didn't see much buzz about it. The courts tromped on Gov. Walker's union busting bill:
Ruling that Republicans in the State Senate had violated the state's open meetings law, a judge in Wisconsin dealt a blow to them and to Gov. Scott Walker on Thursday by granting a permanent injunction that voided a law curbing collective bargaining rights for many state and local employees.
Of course, this is just the District Court and the State Supreme court may well overturn this ruling, considering it's overrun with conservatives most likely beholden in some secret way to the Kochs. Still, good to see the GOPers too clever by half machinations struck down, even if it's only temporary.
