Wisconsin Republican leader asks former state Supreme Court justices to review impeachment

  • Janet Protasiewicz, a self-described progressive judge, has won by an 11-point margin, shifting the ideological balance of power in Milwaukee's circuit court. This comes at a crucial time as major legal clashes on abortion and redistricting are on the horizon.
  • Wisconsin's Republican-controlled legislature wants Protasiewicz to recuse herself from two lawsuits challenging the state's legislative maps as partisan gerrymanders, arguing that she cannot be fair due to her campaign donations and criticism of the Republican-drawn maps.
  • Legislators are even threatening to impeach Protasiewicz if she hears the cases. However, judges are allowed to express their opinions on disputed issues, as long as they don't directly promise a particular ruling. Moreover, campaign supporters and statements haven't historically led to recusals.
