MADISON, Wis. (AP) — State attorneys have asked the Wisconsin Supreme Court to immediately vacate a Madison judge's ruling striking down Gov. Scott Walker's contentious collective bargaining law.

Judge Maryann Sumi invalidated the law on Thursday. She ruled Republican lawmakers violated the state's open meetings law during the run-up to passage in March.

The Supreme Court is set to hear oral arguments on whether to take the case on June 6.

State Justice Department attorneys asked the justices on Friday to immediately vacate Sumi's decision. They argue Sumi issued the decision completely on her own and didn't offer anyone an opportunity to be heard or considered whether striking the law down was the proper remedy.
