Wisconsin Supreme Court Remands Milwaukee's Paid Sick Leave Ordinance Issue

Split evenly, the Supreme Court of Wisconsin has now vacated the order granting certification in Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce v. City of Milwaukee, 2010 WI 122 (Oct. 14, 2010), sending the case back to the appeals court to determine whether to affirm or reverse the circuit court.

MMAC v. City of Milwaukee is the case concerning the voter-approved ordinance initiated by Milwaukee 9to5 that would have provided for paid sick leave for employees within the City of Milwaukee. The ordinance didn't take one breath before challenged in Circuit Court where it was struck down as invalid, unconstitutional, and unenforceable because the ballot question before voters did not adequately describe the ordinance, among other conclusions.

Now we'll have to await the court of appeals decision. Stay tuned!
