9th Circuit says unions can revise their lawsuit over two Idaho laws

Union groups are getting a chance to revise their lawsuit and add new defendants in a challenge to two Idaho laws targeting organized labor, the AP reports, following a ruling by the 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals. The Building and Construction Trades Council AFL-CIO and the Southwest Idaho Building and Construction Trades Council AFL-CIO won their lawsuit in U.S. District Court, overturning both laws, but the state appealed to the 9th Circuit. Before the high court could take up the appeal, lawmakers ditched the criminal penalty for one of the laws, changing the arguments before the appellate court; click below for a full report from AP reporter Rebecca Boone.
