ASHLAND, Wis. (AP) - A state appeals court has revived a lawsuit brought by a group protesting Governor Scott Walker's collective bargaining bill at the Capitol in 2011.

The appeals court says a lower court judge made errors in dismissing the lawsuit. It will be sent back to Dane County Circuit Judge Frank Remington.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Governor Scott Walker disagrees with the Department of Public Instruction's decision not to revoke the license of a teacher who viewed pornographic emails at work.

The DPI says Harris's conduct doesn't meet the legal definition of immoral conduct as the law stood at the time.
