Judge Denies Stay Of Halt To Right-To-Work Law

August 21, 2014 — The Associated Press — A Lake County judge denied a stay in finding Indiana’s right-to-work law unconstitutional.

Circuit Court Judge George Paras handed down a four-sentence order which denies Attorney General Greg Zoeller’s motion for a stay pending appeal.  Indiana’s right-to-work law requires unions to provide free bargaining and grievance services to nonmembers.

Paras declared in his July 17th decision that Indiana’s right-to-work is “null and void in its entirety” and ordered the state not enforce it.

A spokesman for Zoeller says the attorney general has not received a copy of the Paras’ latest order, but will ask the Indiana Supreme Court to issue a stay.  Zoeller’s already filed an appeal with the state’s highest court, asking it to overturn the ruling that labeled the law unconstitutional.
