Wis. Supreme Court-Preview
MADISON, Wis. (AP) – Ed Fallone knows that history is against him as he looks to knock off Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Pat Roggensack. In fact, a sitting state Supreme Court justice has been defeated only five times in the past 161 years. To do it in the April 2 election, the Marquette University law school professor will have to overcome a 34-point margin that separated him and Roggensack in the February primary. The winner gets a 10-year term. Fallone has argued that Roggensack is part of a dysfunctional Supreme Court and needs to be removed. Roggensack says her 17 years’ experience as a judge separates her from Fallone, who has no such experience.
