On October 21, the Wisconsin Supreme Court heard the oral argument on Service Employees International Union, Local 1 v. Robin Vos to determine whether the Legislature may enact statutes that give it litigation authority along with the Attorney General. Justice Brian Hagedorn asked AG Josh Kaul if there's an appropriate situation where the Legislature can give itself both powers of intervention and litigation. AG Kaul responded with, "the appropriate action for the Legislature is not for the Legislature to control the actions of the executive...it is for the Legislature to give itself a right to be heard and intervene in the case." This case comes out of one Dane County Circuit Court case with Judge Frank Remington presiding where SEIU, Local 1, a labor union, and other plaintiffs, challenged the constitutionality of certain statutory provisions that were were passed during the December 2018 extraordinary legislative session.
