Newsmakers: Supreme Court Split

In a June 30 Newsmakers, two former presidents of the State Bar of Wisconsin and a UW-Madison professor of law and political science, said the Wisconsin Supreme Court hit a new, disturbing low this week with news that criminal and professional investigators are probing an alleged June 13 Capitol incident between two justices. Attorneys John Walsh and Steven Levine, and UW-Madison Professor Donald Downs, offered suggestions on how the court could regain public trust. The large amounts of money required to run for the Supreme Court and the increasing partisanship in the legislative and executive branches of state government also contributed to the court’s widening 4-3 split, panelists agreed.
