A Looming Judicial Coup in Wisconsin

1 min read

Democrats fought to elect Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Janet Protasiewicz this spring so she could help them retake control of the state Legislature through a rewrite of the state’s political maps. Now the court’s liberal majority is going through contortions to deliver on that anti-democratic judicial promissory note.

On Tuesday the Justices heard oral arguments in a case that challenges the state’s legislative district maps and would give the Justices broad authority to draw new ones. But the court declined to hear claims that the maps are a partisan gerrymander, agreeing instead to consider the Trojan horse of whether geographically splintered political districts justify throwing out the maps altogether. Wink, wink.
