Wisconsin’s Supreme Court has shifted from a conservative majority to a liberal majority for the first time in 15 years, following the recent victory of Milwaukee County Judge Janet Protasiewicz in the spring election, Temia Fowikes reports for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
According to The Crime Report, Protasiewicz, who has more than 25 years of experience as a prosecutor and teaches at Marquette Law School, is pro-choice and protested against Act 10 during her campaign. She will begin her 10-year term on Aug. 1st, taking over for retiring conservative Justice Patience D. Roggensack.
With this change in leadership, Wisconsin’s Supreme Court will now be composed of Chief Justice Annette (conservative), Kingsland Ziegler (conservative), Ann Walsh Bradley (liberal), Rebecca Grassl Bradley (conservative), Rebecca Frank Dallet (liberal), Brian Hagedorn (conservative) and Jill J. Karofsky (liberal).
