: She left the temporary restraining order against implementation of the union-busting bill in place. For how long?


Sumi said she could not set a date to take more testimony because the GOP legislators named as defendants in the case are still covered under legislative immunity.

Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, Senate President Mike Ellis, Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald and Assembly Majority Leader Scott Suder are entitled to their day in court, Sumi said, but it's hard to know when that will come.
