Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette has taken action to dismiss a lawsuit seeking to overturn the state’s controversial right-to-work law.

In five weeks, Michigan’s so-called Right to Work law takes effect.  Some local Michigan teacher unions are working to lock in new contracts before then.  In some cases, it’s an effort to delay the impact of the controversial new law since it will not include contracts already in place by March 27, when it takes effect.
