A Wisconsin's state appeals court may have found several cases that support the Dane County District Attorney's assertion that open meetings laws were broken when legislators passed a bill restricting collective bargaining, and two to support the Secretary of State's position, WisPolitics.com reports.

"The 4th District Court of Appeals wrote in its certification to the Supreme Court on the complaint that it would be appropriate for the justices to take the case because there are issues they would ultimately consider on petition for review anyway," WisPolitics reports. "Taking it up directly would 'reduce the burden and expense of the appellate process on both the parties and the judicial system.' "

On Thursday, the appeals court said there were too many issues requiring clarification and sent to the state's highest court the attorney general's appeal of a lower court decision which barred implementation of the law. The controversial bill restricts public sector unions.

"Plainly, this case has broad statewide implications for the general public and those most directly affected by the challenged Act, in addition to those interested in the manner of its passage," the Fourth District Court of Appeal's wrote to the high court.
