A federal judge dismissed both lawsuits that sought to stop the child care unionization law.

KSTP reports that, in an unsual Sunday ruling, Chief Judge Michael Davis wrote that “this court does not have jurisdiction” and dismissed the complaint.

In his ruling, Davis said that the lawsuits would ask him to "...peer into a crystal ball, predict the future, and then opine on the constitutionality of a speculative scenario." He said he could not give such an advisory opinion.

The controversial law, passed by the legislature and signed by the governor in May, gives unions authority to call for a unionization vote to cover providers for children who are eligible for state subsidies.
