A Dane County circuit judge was able to stall the [Fitz Van Walker regime's union-busting] bill on a technicality for months.In the business of logical fallacies, this is known as "hand waving."
The "technicality" under consideration is Wisconsin's Open Meetings Law, which occupies an entire subchapter (Subchapter V) of the State statutes, consisting of 50 separate statutory provisions, not including cross references to other statutory provisions, annotations, published interpretations by the Attorney General, prior precedent, and so forth.
In fact a Wisconsin Department of Justice lawyer admitted on the record in that very circuit judge's court that Republican legislators had violated both the letter and the spirit (as clearly articulated by those legislators' predecessors in Wis. Stat. § 19.81) of the State Open Meetings Law.
Thus this so-called "technicality" is not so easily hand-waved away.
However, Subchapter V does not contain one single forward slash.
And as for "tantrums," apparently balloon-stabbings don't count.
