Good!! Injunction on Sick-Leave Granted

Today's news.

A Milwaukee County Circuit Court judge today halted enforcement of Milwaukee's paid sick-day ordinance, just four days before the measure was scheduled to go into effect.

Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Thomas R. Cooper granted the temporary injunction that was sought by the Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce. The pro-business group had challenged the ordinance, which had been passed overwhelmingly by city voters on Nov. 4, 2008.

"This has really shaken up the community," Cooper said. "This call is such a big deal to everybody that we better do it right from the start."

The city did not object to the temporary injunction...
