The Wisconsin Supreme Court has accepted eight new cases and denied review of 34 other cases.

The court accepted cases from Brown, Dane, Wood, Milwaukee, Columbia, Iowa and Racine counties, according to a news release. The cases include:

  • Regency West Apartments LLC v. City of Racine challenges a property tax assessment.
  • Wisconsin Carry v. City of Madison examines whether the state’s concealed carry law pre-empts a local government agency from regulating the carrying of fire arms.
  • Lands’ End Inc. v. City of Dodgeville stems from litigation between Lands’ End and the city of Dodgeville over the fair market value of its headquarters.
  • State v. Maday will require the court to examine whether Maday’s attorney was ineffective for failing to object to testimony from a social worker.
  • Brenner v. National Casualty Co. involves whether an insurance company is liable for injuries a construction worker sustained after he fell through a hole in the floor of a building.
  • State v. Weber is a drunken driving case that examines whether a warrantless entry of an attached garage is justified by hot pursuit alone.
  • Democratic Party of Wisconsin v. Wisconsin Department of Justice stems from a dispute between the DOJ and the state’s Democratic party over an open records request.
  • State v. Finley examines what remedy is available when a defendant who pleads no contest is misinformed that the maximum penalty that could be imposed is lower than the maximum allowed by law and the sentence imposed is longer than what the defendant thought he could get.
