Show-Me 'Right To Work' Court Fight FAIL
A legal move to challenge Missouri law suffers a defeat that was mostly unnoticed . . .
"Republican Cole County Circuit Judge Jon Beetem in his ruling said summaries approved by Kander might have been sufficient at that time. But he said the main effect of the measures now would be to repeal the right-to-work law, and the petitions as written lacked context to show what effect they would have. “Because the summary statements here do not provide this essential context, they are unfair and insufficient,” Beetem said."
