MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The Wisconsin Supreme Court plans to rule Thursday in three major cases.

The court is planning to issue its ruling on the collective bargaining changes Gov. Scott Walker and the Republican Legislature approved in 2011, despite massive protests that led to a series of recall elections.

Elements of the law have been upheld by the state Supreme Court and two federal courts already.

The state Supreme Court is also planning to rule on a pair of cases challenging the 2011 law requiring voters to show photo identification at the polls. That decision is expected to have a limited impact given that a federal court in April ruled that the requirement violated the state constitution.

The court is also slated to decide a case challenging the state's domestic partner registry.
