Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne said in a court filing that Judge Michael moncler jackets Gableman should have recused himself from the case.
A divided Supreme Court in June allowed the union law to go into effect by a vote of 4 to 3 with Gableman in the majority. The court would have been deadlocked had Gableman recused himself.
The law set off a fierce national debate on the collective bargaining rights of labor unions and prompted a drive to remove from office nine Wisconsin state senators. Two Republicans who had supported the union curbs were recalled.
The law forced local workers such as teachers to pay more for health care and pensions, and limited the ability of their unions to negotiate wage increases.
Democrats and labor unions are leading a campaign to force a recall election next year of Republican Governor Scott Walker, who championed the union law.
The court filing on Friday said that Gableman should have recused himself because a lawyer who represented the Republican-led state government in the case had represented Gableman on a personal issue.
"Justice Gableman received legal representation from a private law firm, Michael Best & Friedrich, LLP in a personal legal matter without any obligation to pay legal fees," the court papers said.
The filing said that Gableman's personal lawyer, Eric McLeod, attended the oral argument before the state Supreme Court on the union law as a representative of the state government.
The filing asked the court to either void the law or force Gableman to recuse himself. Gableman has denied any wrongdoing.
Sears Holdings moncler jackets cheap Corp. earlier this week announced plans to close more than 100 Sears and Kmart stores in its chain of roughly 4,000 stores nationwide. The corporation’s cost-cutting measure — coming after a decline in sales — made regional and national headlines.
The store at 2931 West Shore Drive wasn’t on a list of 79 specific stores to be closed, which Sears released Thursday. The list did include six Michigan stores: Sears stores in Adrian, Monroe, Harper Woods and Brighton, and two Kmart stores outside of Detroit. But more than escaping a shutdown, the Holland Township store is an example of the company investing in new ideas.
Sears and franchisee owner Tom Chester spent about $900,000 this summer to remodel the store and re-create it as a chain prototype for a new type of Sears storefront, that like a corner hardware store, carries hammers and nails, Chester said.
“There’s a considerable amount of re-investment being done by Sears,” Chester said. “We’re still a very healthy corporation.”
The store is a prototype for a Sears Appliance and Hardware store that’s already being considered by other franchisee owners, he said. The store carries fasteners and tools in addition to the appliances that it sold previously as a Sears Hometown store.
“We are a unique store in the Sears infrastructure,” Chester said.
The indoor remodel is complete, with new signs expected to go up outdoors soon.
“This was a complete remake, from the linoleum on up,” he said.
Most of the Sears stores to be closed are full-line department stores, unlike the one in Holland Township.Moncler mens jackets, cheap moncler jackets for men, 70% off.
“These actions will better enable us to focus our investments on serving our customers and members through integrated retail — at the store, online and in the home,” Sears Holdings Corp. CEO Lou D’Ambrosio said in a prepared statement.
