UPDATE: Wisconsinreporter.com confirms

Here's the first posting from Wisconsinreporter.com:

"The state Supreme Court overturned a lower court late Thursday, ruling that Gov. Scott Walker’s contentious collective bargaining law is in effect.

"The ruling voids Dane County Circuit Court Judge Maryann Sumi’s decision that the law wasn’t in effect because lawmakers broke the state’s open meetings law during the passage of the legislation.

"The news came as lawmakers prepared to add the collective bargaining legislation as an amendment to the budget bill that the Assembly is set to start debating tonight.

“'We’ve been saying since day one that Republicans passed the budget repair bill correctly, so frankly this isn’t much of a surprise,' Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald and his brother, Assembly Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald said in a joint statement. 'We followed the law when the bill was passed, simple as that.'”
