Judge won't immediately stop state govt. layoffs

A judge has refused to issue an emergency order blocking state employee layoffs being imposed because of big budget cuts.

However, Judge Andrew Klein of the Maricopa County Superior Court on Monday strongly suggested to lawyers for the state that it needs to do a better job of including explanations of employee rights in future layoff notices.

Klein scheduled a March 19 hearing on a request for a preliminary injunction sought in a class-action lawsuit filed last week by a labor union.
