MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice David Prosser says he won’t recuse himself from deciding whether the state’s highest court should consider a lawsuit filed over a recently passed law taking away collective bargaining rights from public employees.
A state appeals court on Thursday said the Supreme Court should take the case.
A majority of the seven-member Supreme Court must agree to take the case or it would remain in the appeals court.
Prosser said he will participate, but he doesn’t have “the slightest clue” as to what he would decide.
Prosser is up for re-election on April 5.
He said his policy is not to participate in cases that involve lawmakers he served with in the past only if the case is about them.
