Legal community, others remember late justice

Members of the legal community, lawmakers and other remembered the late Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Patrick Crooks at a memorial service Friday.

The family of late Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Patrick Crooks hosted the service in the Senate Chamber on Friday evening. State Bar President Ralph Cagle was the master of ceremony for the service. Former Justice Louis Butler and Jim Marshall, a former broadcast journalist, spoke about their long-time friend and colleague at the service. Former Justice Jon Wilcox had been scheduled to also give remarks about Crooks, but was unable to attend.

Crooks, 77, died of natural causes in his chambers Sept. 21. He was in the final year of his second 10-year term, and was seen as a peacemaker and swing vote on the divided court.
