MADISON, Wis. - A Wisconsin judge has ruled the state's explosive new collective bargaining law is not in effect.

Dane County Circuit Judge Maryann Sumi issued a restraining order earlier this month preventing the secretary of state from publishing the law, typically the last step before it takes effect. Republicans pushing the bill convinced another state office to publish it and declared the law was in effect.

Sumi issued a declaration on Thursday morning saying the law wasn't properly published and isn't in effect.
