Liberal Coalition Files Lawsuit To Stop Bills Passed In Lame-Duck Session

A lawsuit has been filed in Dane County Circuit Court in an effort to void a series of laws passed during last month’s lame-duck special session.  The coalition of liberal groups and advocates for persons with disabilities argues the session was illegally convened.  A Democratic state lawmaker confined to a wheelchair has already filed a complaint about the special session.  He says leaders broke the open meetings law when they didn’t say when a vote would be held.  His legal action isn’t connected to the suit filed Thursday.
