Supreme Court candidates to debate in Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE (AP) — The two candidates for Wisconsin Supreme Court will debate at Marquette University on Monday.

Justice David Prosser and Assistant Attorney General JoAnne Kloppenburg are expected to discuss their qualifications, judicial philosophies and the important issues facing the state’s highest court during a one-hour debate Monday.

Kloppenburg has been a litigator and prosecutor at the Wisconsin Department of Justice since 1989. Prosser was appointed to the court in 1998 and elected to a 10-year term in 2001. The election is April 5.

A panel consisting of journalists and Janine Geske, a law professor and former Wisconsin Supreme Court justice, will question the candidates in Eckstein Hall.


  1. You forgot the “when.”

  2. 7 p.m. at Eckstein Hall, 1215 W. Michigan St. If you want to attend you need to register online here:

  3. Women gather, men hunt.

    I just want to want to throw my two cents in here to support Justice Prosser. In a time when
    most women have forgotten their place in society and role in family, Justice Prosser has
    the integrity to stand for family values in the courtroom. When a female justice stepped
    out of line in his presence, his rightly called her out as being a “bitch” and when a namby-
    pamby “molestee support group” went after a loving and caring priest, Prosser was the first
    to stand up in defense of the assailed holy man. A vote for Prosser will insure justice
    does not come at the expense of family-oriented society.
