"And stormed into his chambers."
It bears repeating that three of the four justices who formed the majority in Huebsch v. Dane County Circuit Court have had ethics complaints filed or an ethics investigation undertaken against them.
Justice Ziegler received a public reprimand from the Supreme Court for failing to disclose her financial relationships to parties before the court when she was a circuit judge in Washington County. Gableman was charged with lying about his political opponent in the 2008 election that placed him on the bench. While the Supreme Court split on Gableman's fate, he was found by a three-man panel of appeals court judges to have violated two provisions of the Wisconsin Code of Judicial Ethics. Gableman failed to win dismissal of the Judicial Commission's complaint against him, and it remains pending.* Now, the Prosser investigation.
It also bears repeating that these same judges preside over the ethical responsibilities and behavior of the State of Wisconsin's attorneys.
Some may recall the celebrated case of Beams v. Motes.
* Partly because Wisconsin's statutory framework dealing with ethical violation prosecutions is incoherent. They were supposed to fix this.
Now it needs fixing more than ever.
