Koschnick "troubled" by argument schedule

So Jefferson County Circuit Judge Randy Koschnick says he finds it "troubling" that Wisconsin Supreme Court Chief Justice Shirley S. Abrahamson was unable to attend yesterday's lunchtime judicial forum at the Milwaukee Bar Association.

Apparently she floated some lame excuse about hearing oral arguments, the dates for which are set months in advance.

Can you imagine, not conforming with Judge Koschnick's own personal schedule. The nerve. It's ... well ... "troubling."

I'm also a little surprised with the Wisconsin Law Journal's Jack Zemlicka, who had reported last week that "both candidates" would be appearing at the MBA although more evidence the Chief was unable to be present was posted for some time at the MBA's website.

Not only that but today's WLJ item is actually headlined, "No Abrahamson at second forum." But it's not a recent development.

We knew this ages ago. The fastidious chronicler of all things appellate Terrence Berres was probably on it sometime last year.

Even your own humble correspondent had mentioned it. If it's any consolation, I wasn't able to attend either. Far too busy being 100% pro-criminal and complaining to the Milwaukee County Clerk of Courts how "troubling" the calendars are to me personally.

Yet Koschnick claims he's more qualified than the Chief Justice.

Absolutely amazing. Still, two more months of entertainment.
