Connecticut AG to Appeal Labor Case That Was a Loss for Rowland
Attorney General George Jepsen, a former union lawyer and Democratic state chairman, said Thursday he will ask the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn a union victory that came at the expense of an old Republican nemesis, former Gov. John G. Rowland, according to a CT Mirror story.
If politics makes for strange bedfellows, that's doubly so when politics intersects with the law.
Jepsen is seeking a reversal of a federal appeals court decision two weeks ago to preserve management rights of state and local governments against what labor lawyers said was a far-reaching decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.
