MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A county prosecutor is trying to convince the Wisconsin Supreme Court that Republicans should appeal a judge's ruling overturning the state's polarizing union rights law through the normal process.

Republicans have asked the high court to take the case early, but Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne asked the justices during oral arguments Monday to allow the case to follow the usual appeals process. He says that would provide a better record if the case reaches the Supreme Court.

Ozanne filed a lawsuit challenging the law eliminating most of public employees' collective bargaining rights shortly after Republican Gov. Scott Walker signed it. He says Republican legislators violated state law by convening a committee meeting on the proposal without the proper public notice.
