Gov. Evers, AG Kaul move to withdraw Wisconsin from ACA lawsuit

MADISON, Wis. (CBS 58/AP) -- Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul has officially requested to withdraw Wisconsin from a multistate lawsuit challenging the Affordable Care Act after a judge blocked lame-duck laws prohibiting him from withdrawing the state from legal actions.

Governor Tony Evers had promised during his campaign last year to pull Wisconsin out of the ACA lawsuit, however, Republican lawmakers stopped him after passing lame-duck bills in December that prohibited him from withdrawing from lawsuits without legislative approval.

Dane County Circuit Judge Richard Niess issued a temporary injunction Thursday blocking the lame-duck laws, ruling that the Legislature had convened illegally when it passed them.

Evers' attorney sent a message to the state Department of Justice less than two hours after Niess issued the ruling ordering the withdraw from the ACA action.
