Who Needs Recusal Rules? Wisconsin does.

Who Needs Recusal Rules? Wisconsin does.

In the past there have been cases before the Wisconsin Supreme Court where one of the seven justices has had a conflict of interest.But in Wisconsin, there are no real rules dictating when a Supreme Court justice should recuse themselves from the case. They rely on the time tested “honor system” Can we agree that should change? But if it were to change, what should recusal standards include? We bring this up today because last week, Vos Robin Vos said that Justice Protasiewicz should recuse on redistricting cases or risk impeachment. Then we discuss the wild case that led to a police raid of a local newspaper in Kansas (with some Wisconsin connection) and recap some of the antics that the Presidential candidates did at the Iowa State Fair over the weekend.
