Plan collapses to name building after state Supreme Court justice

State Worker blog users who missed the news will be interested in this report about a resolution that aimed to name a building after retiring state Supreme Court Chief Justice Ronald George. It failed, and its failure is tied to the union's furlough litigation that will be argued next week in George's court.

Hat tip to Torey Van Oot at our sister blog, Capitol Alert, for picking off the resolution's saga in the blizzard of legislation that lawmakers pushed through this week before the end of their session on Tuesday.
