Everyone's Business: Emerging Issues in the Wisconsin Supreme Court
March 25, 2008Richard Esenberg
The purpose of this paper is not to rehearse the arguments that I made last year, but to examine a series of issues that are likely to come before the court in the near future. Of course, doing so is something of an educated guess. The Court’s calendar is a function of the choices of litigants and the Court’s responses to the cases that it is asked to review. These issues may not present themselves and it is almost certain that other important questions – including some that have not occurred to me – will come before the court. My purpose here is to simply suggest some potential judicial frontiers as we once again debate the role of the Wisconsin Supreme Court in the midst of an election.
