Wisconsin: Judicial Commission Called to Send Justice Prosser’s Discipline Case to Three-Judge Panel

Former Senior Director

The judicial commission called for the discipline case against Justice David Prosser to be sent to a panel of three court of appeals judges. The role of such a panel is to recommend to the supreme court what, if any, disciplinary action should be taken, but it is unclear whether the supreme court must call for a panel’s consideration of the case. Prosser has called for the recusal of colleagues who witnessed the incident that gave rise to the case.
