Observers listen as procedural issues are argued during the process of recounting ballots from the November 3 election at the Wisconsin Center on November 20, 2020 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

It’s shaping up to be another busy week for the Wisconsin courts. The state Supreme Court rejected a couple of lawsuits last week related to President Donald Trump’s claims that the election was conducted illegally in the state.

The court ruled that Trump’s grievances must first go through lower courts. His attorneys then filed similar claims in federal court in Wisconsin.

In this week’s Capitol Notes conversation, JR Ross of wispolitics.com tells WUWM’s Marti Mikkelson that this week will likely see another flurry of court activity, with Trump’s case ultimately reaching the Wisconsin Supreme Court again.

Marti was a reporter with WUWM from 1999 to 2021.
