Ind. Decisions - "Supreme Court dismisses final right-to-work challenge"

Dan Carden reports in a long story today in the NWI Times:

Indiana's right-to-work law will remain in effect for the foreseeable future after the Indiana Supreme Court tossed the sole remaining constitutional challenge to the controversial labor statute.

In an order dated Tuesday but released Wednesday, the state's high court vacated Lake Circuit Judge George Paras' Aug. 13 ruling that found the 2012 law unconstitutionally required labor unions provide services to nonunion members without compensation.

The action was not unexpected after the Supreme Court upheld the right-to-work law Nov. 6 in a 5-0 decision overturning a similar finding by Lake Superior Judge John Sedia that the law was unconstitutional.

The Times accompanies the story with the one-page Zoeller v. Sweeney ruling dismissing the lawsuit.
