The power of the Wisconsin Supreme Court to impact individuals and businesses can equal or exceed that of the Legislature or the Governor. Yet, few people understand who the Justices are and how their decisions shape our lives and economy.
The Wisconsin Civil Justice Council (WCJC) has undertaken a biennial Judicial Evaluation of the Wisconsin Supreme Court. Our purpose is to educate WCJC’s members and the public by providing a summary of the most important decisions issued by the Court which have had an effect on Wisconsin’s business climate and to identify trends in how individual Justices voted.
The 2013 Guide highlights the most important cases decided over the past two terms (from 2010 through 2012). The 2013 Guide describes the Supreme Court’s decision in each selected case, WCJC’s position, and how each justice decided the case.
