A recent report puts Wisconsin in its "Hall of Shame" for the nasty nature of its state judicial campaigns, thanks to outside money and political pressure.

The Wisconsin Supreme Court listened to arguments Monday over whether Act 10 is unconstitutional.

Donald W. Steinmetz, who served on the state Supreme Court for 19 years, died last weekend.

A proposal by a local task force is gaining steam in Wisconsin. It would limit Wisconsin Supreme Court Justices to one 16 year term. Right now, justices serve 10 year terms with no limits.

The Wisconsin Supreme Court has decided to hear a challenge to the state's domestic partner registry.  The registry grants same-sex couples a host of legal rights. 

Members of the conservative group Wisconsin Family Action, filed a lawsuit in 2010 alleging the registry violates the state constitution.  It was amended in 2006 prohibiting gay marriage or civil unions.

An appeals court upheld the registry in December, listing a number of rights married couples enjoy that same-sex couples don't, even if they join the registry.

The Wisconsin Supreme Court has agreed to hear a lawsuit brought by two unions challenging the constitutionality of Gov. Scott Walker's law effectively ending collective bargaining for most public workers.

The Supreme Court announced Friday it was taking the case, after an appeals court made the request, noting ongoing uncertainty about the law's status.

Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Pat Roggensack has won a second ten year term. Roggensack handily defeated Marquette University Law Professor Ed Fallone in Tuesday’s election.

Following the results of Tuesday's Wisconsin Supreme Court Election in which incumbent Justice Pat Roggensack won another 10-year term, former Justice Janine Geske shared her thoughts about the race and concerns about the court.
