Re: Issue an injunction
By all means, editorialize against the City of Milwaukee's proposed sick leave ordinance. And by all means, defend the reasoning of the Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce's lawsuit against the city seeking to prevent the ordinance's implementation.
And by all means, publicly urge the presiding circuit court judge to rule in MMAC's favor at the latter's motion hearing on Feb. 6.*
But do disclose that Steven J. Smith, the chairman and CEO of the Journal-Sentinel's parent corporation, is an officer of MMAC and as such was among those who authorized the lawsuit in November.
This information may be useful to a reader.
* Not Jan. 29, as the J-S editorial board tells us. Also, does the editorial board actually believe it can influence a judge's disposition on the motion? Talk about delusions of grantor.
