Earlier today Dane County Judge Juan Colas struck down Wisconsin Act 10, which virtually eliminated collective bargaining rights for public employees.
While Judge Colas’ decision is certainly good news, I don’t expect his ruling to last, given the conservative bent to our State Supreme court. No doubt Justice David Prosser will have another opportunity to [...]
Yet more proof Republicans don’t care about good government… Gov. Scott Walker relied on recommendations from a former Assembly speaker who once worked for state Supreme Court Justice David Prosser in appointing members of a commission investigating Prosser, newly released records show.
Three of the five people Walker appointed to the state Judicial Commission earlier [...]
Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice David Prosser, currently the target of an ethics probe for choking fellow Justice Ann Walsh Bradley, claimed today that it is constitutionally illegal to investigate his actions under the First Amendment to the Constitution. Nevermind any Wisconsin law, I suppose. Here’s what he said, as reported by the Wisconsin State Journal:

While it turns out he has never specifically said those exact words, that is just splitting hairs, because he has been one of the driving forces this year in trying to turn [...]
While much of the violence on the right throughout this year has been advocated from the very top with Governor Scott Walker considering adding \"agent provocateurs\" to the peaceful crowd, to Scott Fitzgerald yelling at one of Mark Miller\'s female staffers so violently she felt the need to call the police for protection, to Justice [...]
The Young Guns (Paul Ryan, Eric Cantor & Kevin McCarthy) have been telling anyone who will listen the regulations is choking the private sector like like Justice David Prosser chokes a woman*(he was mad so it was justified). Unfortunately for the ‘Young guns” Bruce bartlett, ex Ronald Reagan and George H W Bush economist was [...]
