Appeals Court Reinstates Some Wisconsin Lame-Duck Laws

An appeals court in Wisconsin has reinstated laws the state legislature passed last year that stripped some powers from the now-current governor and attorney general.  GOP lawmakers hastily passed  three laws  during the December 2018 lame-duck session.

Last week, Judge Richard Niess deemed the entire special session unconstitutional, and he issued a temporary injunction blocking those controversial laws.

But on Wednesday, a three-judge panel decided to  temporarily stay  Judge Niess' ruling while it considers the case.

However, as the  Milwaukee Journal Sentinel  notes, the appeals court didn't act on a different ruling in another case that blocked parts of those same laws.
