Wisconsin Supreme Court Involved In Heated Post-Caperton Recusal Dispute

The Justices on the Wisconsin Supreme Court are involved in an interesting post-Caperton recusal challenge.  An article can be found in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.  Prior Caperton posts can be found here and here.  The article starts "Justices on the deeply divided state Supreme Court hurled dueling statements this week, with one contingent accusing the other of delaying decisions on how to handle requests to force the newest member of the court off criminal cases."  Thanks to the Election Law Blog for the link to the Journal Sentinel article. 

The Wisconsin Supreme Court's website provides the briefs and the issue.

In re creation of rules for recusal when a party or lawyer in a case made contribution effecting a judicial campaign filed 06/20/08 by Melanie G. Ramey, President on behalf of the League of Women Voters of Wisconsin Education Fund, Inc.
