INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana Attorney General's office and attorneys for two sets of plaintiffs challenging the state's right-to-work ban on certain union fees want the Indiana Supreme Court to consolidate the cases.

In the most recent case, Lake County Judge George Paras ruled last month that the 2012 law violates the state constitution by forcing unions to provide services to workers without payment.

Attorney General's Office spokesman Bryan Corbin said Monday that attorneys for the state and the plaintiffs in an earlier case now pending before the Indiana Supreme Court want the two cases combined. Corbin says that if that happens, the state wants Paras' ruling put on hold, and the plaintiffs aren't opposed to that.

The Supreme Court currently is scheduled to hear oral arguments in the earlier case next week.
