MADISON, Wis. (AP) – A former Wisconsin prosecutor accused of trying to spark an affair with a domestic abuse victim wants the state Supreme Court to toss a complaint against him because state regulators already dismissed the case once.
Ken Kratz resigned from his position as Calumet County district attorney in 2010 after The Associated Press reported he sent a series of racy texts to a young domestic abuse victim.
The state Office of Lawyer Regulation declined to discipline him. The office reopened its investigation, however, in the wake of the AP’s stories and in November filed a complaint with the Supreme Court asking the justices to suspend Kratz’s law license.
Kratz argues in documents filed Thursday the Supreme Court should dismiss the complaint in part because the OLR already cleared him.
