Judge declines to stay ruling striking down parts of collective bargaining law

Colas wrote that issuing a stay that would put his decision on hold would allow continued violations of the state and federal constitutions, contrary to the public interest.

“The constitutions are the fundamental expressions of the will of the people acting in their sovereign capacity,” Colas wrote. “Even laws enacted by the legislature and the governor, though they may manifest the popular will of their time, are subordinate to them. Even a temporary infringement of fundamental rights of speech and association protected by the constitutions is an irreparable harm.”
