Two Justices Not Saying Yet Whether They'll Avoid Prosser Hearing
We don't know yet whether two women on the Wisconsin Supreme Court would recuse themselves from a possible disciplinary hearing against fellow justice David Prosser.
The two that Prosser doesn't want hearing the case are Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson, and the justice Prosser is accused of trying to choke, Ann Walsh Bradley. Both women spoke in La Crosse last week, but did not declare whether they would stay out of a hearing in the Prosser case. Abrahamson admits it's a "troublesome" situation.
The Wisconsin Judicial Commission says Prosser violated three ethical rules, but a group of appeals court judges is deciding now whether to send the matter to the Supreme Court.
