INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana Supreme Court has ordered a northwest Indiana judge’s ruling striking down the state’s right-to-work law be stayed.

The ruling signed Friday by new Chief Justice Loretta Rush stays an order by Lake County Judge George Paras in July that determined the law violates the state constitution by forcing unions to provide services to workers without payment. The order stays that ruling until the conclusion of the state’s appeal of the ruling or until the high court issues a different ruling.

The Supreme Court also declined to consolidate that case with a similar case involving Indiana’s right to work law because oral arguments are scheduled for Thursday in one case and briefs haven’t been filed in the other. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
