Justice Walsh Bradley recuses from discipline case against Justice Prosser

Justice David Prosser of the Wisconsin Supreme Court was accused by Associate Justice Ann Walsh Bradley of assault and battery, to wit - putting his hands around her throat in anger.  The police did not charge Prosser but judicial disciplinary proceedings began. Justice Bradley has now recused leaving only two  of the seven members of the court to decide.  Unless they have a mechanism - such as New Jersey's Constitution provides - to temporarily assign lower court judges to achieve a quorum, the case will remain in limbo and the court riven by the unresolved controversy, as the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. - GWC
