Marquette Professor Says Wisconsin Supreme Court Race Differs From Those in Recent Past

Feb 8, 2018

In just a couple of weeks Wisconsin voters will be one step closer to electing a new state Supreme Court Justice. There was an opening on the bench after Justice Michael Gableman announced he would not run for a second term.

A three-way primary will be held on Feb 20 between Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Rebecca Dallet, Sauk County Circuit Judge Michael Screnock and Madison Attorney Tim Burns. The top two vote getters will advance to the April general election.

Earlier this week, WUWM profiled the candidates. Now, she brings us Marquette Law Professor Chad Oldfather to help make sense of it all.
