Last week I blogged a bit about the temporary restraining order issued by Circuit Court Judge Maryann Sumi on the new Wisconsin law limiting collective bargaining by public sector employees. I also pointed out this was the same judge who refused to force the
striking protesting teachers back to the classrooms.
While I was writing the post it was running through my mind that based on here judgments that she might have more than a passing interest in these matters. Well, it turns out that her son is a union (progressive?) activist, heavily involved with AFL-CIO and SEIU, who have their share of public sector unions they represent. A column over at Big Government brings up the point that maybe she should have recused herself from the case. What do you think?
