Judge Maryann Sumi, a Dane County Judge in Wisconsin listens to arguments during a hearing Friday, March 18, 2011 in Dane County Curcuit Court in Madison, Wis. (AP)

judge issued a temporary restraining order Friday blocking the state’s new and contentious collective bargaining law from taking effect, a measure that drew thousands of Union organized thuggish protesters to trash the state Capitol building and sent some Democrats fleeing to Illinois in an illegal attempt to block a vote on it.  Judge Sumi has now scheduled hearings on this ruling for March 29th. In the meantime, the recent law limiting Union bargaining power in the State of Wisconsin will be temporarily put on hold. I find this action to be very hypocritical and to be nothing short of  ludicrous posturing and Liberal denial of true democracy in action. Where was this reportedly far far left Judge, while the Wisconsin Democratic Senators blocked the state legislative process from being implemented while hiding out in Chicago like spanked children running away from their responsibilities? Elections have consequences, and when Democrats lose, ( see Al Gore in the 200 elections) they refuse to accept the election results time and time again.

This is the exact same Union vote-buying sucker-puppet, pay for play Liberal Judge, that refused to order the Madison School District’s Union schoolteachers back to work last month, while ignoring the fact that said Union teacher’s de-facto strike was against Wisconsin law. Here you have hundreds of Union teachers refusing to show up for work for weeks because they do not like what the winning party in the 2010 elections are doing, and this far left *Judge* ( I use that term for her quite loosely) doesn’t call it a strike ?  That is ludicrous!

I also do not agree with Fox News reporting that this will be a “major setback”  for Republicans in Wisconsin. The rule of law will prevail, and to emphasise that point, there should be a recall petition to remove this far left Judge Sumi immediately. It has become very obvious that this Judge has delusions of grandeur concerning the stated authority she holds in her very shameful attempts here in interpreting Wisconsin State laws as she feels fit, instead of as they are written. This Judges misguided ruling will be proven to be a waste of time and money in the end, leaving her exposed as a Union puppet unworthy of sitting on a bench in any courtroom in America, period.

Judge Sumi ruled on this at the request of another Union owned Democratic puppet, District Attorney Ismael Ozane. In another note of irony here,  Wisc. State Senator Erpenbach,  (D) the winner of the CDN Jackass of the Week award** put his hypocritical two-cents in here by stating:  “I would hope the Republicans would take this as an opportunity to sit down with Democrats and negotiate a proposal we could all get behind,”  Oh really? Just how does Democracy work in a state legislature when every single childish Democratic Senator is hiding in a hotel in Chicago ?  It is kind of late to start talking that game, and it is pretty nothing short of ludicrous to mention working together, when you hid out for weeks on end to block Democracy for being implemented in the first place.

Stay tuned, this is far from over, and we will see this self-important Judge and her Democratic co-conspirators made to answer for these kinds of childish, Democracy-ignoring actions. Start the recall petition for this far left Union puppet Judge today, send them a message.


The State Journal reports:  Amid uncertainty about a state law that sharply curtails collective bargaining, Madison officials on Friday announced tentative contract extensions with more labor unions and promised a special City Council meeting to approve them next week  The city announced an agreement with its biggest union AFSCME Local 60, on Tuesday, and on Friday announced deals with other AFSCME bargaining units, bus drivers and mechanics, Streets Division and other laborers, stagehands, building and trades and fire supervisors.  The unions ratified the contracts this week.
   BINGO ! Play for pay UNION Judge delaying the law so UNIONS can suck more from the taxpayers.
Update2 Shes baaaack! Union puppet Judge Sumi puts law on hold again!

  1. We have way too many liberal Judges in this Country. I agree with you that these union people and Senators in WI acted like a bunch of children. Obviously they are not use to be told NO to anything so when they don’t get their way they throw tantrums until they get what they want.

    1. Sorry to burst your article’s bubble, but Sumi was appointed by a Republican governor. So, what’s this article’s claim again? Oh, right. There is no legitimate claim.

      1. QUINCY NEWSPAPER INC (QUINC-7) Another leftist hack trying to look smart- DREW see Michael Funk- Chicago ,Illinois area. Union puppet.

      2. I don’t know nor do I care who appointed this Liberal Judge. There are some “Republicans” who call themselves that but lean liberal themselves. My whole point is we don’t need Liberal judges from any party because they are all loony that I have seen.

  2. I love people talking about *legitimate claims* yet fail to rebuke one single item in an article. Sad how some people are that simple and naive. For example, what part of hundreds of teachers not showing up for work do you think is not a strike? You know, an Illegal Strike by Wisconsin law? Thus the judge is an activist siding with Unions for political gains.

    People will look facts in the face today and try to deny them with bloviating about non-relevant matters, because they are afraid of the truth. I am really impressed by 14 Senators who refuse to do their jobs because they lost the elections and ran and hid in Chicago like children throwing a tantrum.
    Then I am even more impressed when the vey people blocking the Democratic process of the state Senate from doing it’s job try to tell people they want democracy. Pathetic hypocrites and their uneducated followers trying to make their actions look like the opposite of what they are here.
    I could care less who appointed this flake of a judge. Her leftist 5 minutes of fame will be over very soon.
