Indiana's Right-To-Work Law Suffers Second Legal Defeat; Heading For State Supreme Court
Another judge has ruled against Indiana’s two-year-old right-to-work law.
Lake County Judge George Paras ruled this week the law forcing unions to provide services for workers who don’t pay dues, is against the constitution. The Evansville Courier & Press reports that led Indiana’s attorney general to request a stay of that ruling until the State Supreme Court takes up another judge’s ruling at a September 4th hearing.
The right-to-work legislation was passed in 2012 by a Republican-dominated legislature.
