Wisconsin Court of Appeals


Municipalities – appeal — notice

Last November the Waukesha Municipal Court issued a municipal court judgment against Stephen Green in relation to violation of municipal building codes regarding a property he bought during foreclosure proceedings. Green tried to appeal the decision of the municipal court to the circuit court but failed to properly notify the City of Waukesha of the appeal as required by Wis. Stat. § 800.14 (2011-12). The circuit court granted the City of Waukesha’s motion to dismiss Green’s appeal for lack of jurisdiction due to this failure, and Green reiterates the same argument he made in the circuit court, that the notice of appeal form and his receipt for paying the filing fee sufficed to give the City notice. We affirm the circuit court’s dismissal of Green’s appeal. This opinion will not be published.
