The Wisconsin Supreme Court announced on June 11, 2024, the temporary suspension of Attorney James R. Troupis‘ appointment to the Judicial Conduct Advisory Committee.

According to court officials, an order dated March 2, 2023, reappointed Troupis to his second and final term as a member of the court’s Judicial Conduct Advisory Committee, which term expires March 7, 2026, or until further order of the Court.

According to a Wisconsin Supreme Court order obtained by the Wisconsin Law Journal on Tuesday, Troupis has been temporarily suspended from service on the Judicial Conduct Advisory Committee.

Court officials noted Justice Rebecca Bradley did not participate.

As previously reported by the Wisconsin Law Journal, last week Tuesday (June 4), Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul filed felony forgery charges against an aide and two attorneys who worked for former President Donald Trump in 2020 for their part in designing and executing a plan to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election by submitting false slates of electors for Trump.

Kaul filed the charges in Dane County Circuit Court against Kenneth Chesebro, a Wisconsin native and lead architect of the 2020 fake elector plan; former Dane County Judge Jim Troupis, who represented Trump in Wisconsin during the 2020 election; and Mike Roman, a former Trump aide who allegedly delivered Wisconsin’s slate of false elector paperwork to a Pennsylvania congressman’s staffer in order to get them to Vice President Mike Pence on Jan. 6, 2021.
