Shorter Koschnick

Wisconsin Chief Justice Shirley S. Abrahamson authored or joined three thousand four hundred and ninety-seven superb, thoughtful, and unassailably reasoned opinions of the State Supreme Court.

Candidate is troubled by the other three.

There must be a latter day Roman Hruska out there, willing to tout Koschnick's candidacy:

""Even if he were mediocre, there are a lot of mediocre judges and people and lawyers. They are entitled to a little representation, aren't they, and a little chance? We can't have all Brandeises, Frankfurters and Cardozos." (And Abrahamsons, our avatar would add.)

From Wikipedia:

At the finale of the song "Dead Puppies," a novelty song often played on The Dr. Demento Show, Bill Frenzer of the group Ogden Edsl is heard to shout "one more time for Roman Hruska!"

But these are the 7 that will haunt Koschnick:

1) State v. McClaren;
2) State v. Baron;
3) Mertz v. Waldoch);
4)In re Paternity of James L.C.;
5)Zawistowski v. Zawistowski (reversed in part);
6.) Bidstrup v. Wisconsin Dept. of Health and Family Services (reversed in part);
7.)County of Jefferson v. Demler (reversed and directed to dismiss a traffic citation)

Its gotta take some effort to get reversed on a traffic violation.

Koschnick and Gableman graduated from the same law school. Not a good one either.
Hamline U a 4th tier law school. Basically the bottom of the barrel. Why both men could not get into UW Law or Marquette is anyones guess.
Is this the puppy mill of law schools?
where avg income of grads is less than half that of a UW-Madison grad. Where 1st attempts to pass a bar exam is -6%?
Maybe Wisc should consider judicial recall elections in addition to WMC funded bench puppets?
