    Evidently the cops seem to think that its not an emergency…probably part of the wingers cost cutting in the Badger.

    it's turned out to be a he-said-she-said thing; nobody apparently has any evidence one way or the other. The matter has been turned over to the investigative service responsible for handling judges. We'll see what comes of it.

    Well, it's Monday afternoon, shortly before quitting time and no reports of charges being filed. Why not?

    The case has been handed over to a new agency (sheriff's dept). They will now begin their investigation. Will just have to see what transpires.

    The fact that there were 3-4 State Supreme Court judges standing witness to the original event several week ago and no charges have been filed to date is telling. Would be surprised if assault charges surfaced at this point.

    My take/suspicion is that 2 crotchety old knucklehead judges got in each others faces during a heated arguement and just got tangled up. From what we are reading about the characters in this drama, am thinking he really is a jackass, and maybe she really is a bitch.

    Yes, its telling the world that they are scared to death and are proceeding extremely slowly and cautiously.

    Or, they don't see any evidence of a crime and are looking for some advice.

    .

    "According to one witness, Bradley charged toward Prosser, shaking her clenched fist in his face. Another source says they were “literally nose to nose.” Prosser then put his hands up to push her away. As one source pointed out, if a man wants to push a woman who is facing him, he wouldn’t push her in the chest (unless he wants to face an entirely different criminal charge). Consequently, Prosser put his hands on Bradley’s shoulders to push her away, and in doing so, made contact with her neck.

    At that moment, another justice approached Bradley from behind and pulled her away from Prosser, saying, “Stop it, Ann, this isn’t like you.” Bradley then shouted, “I was choked!” Another justice present replied, “You were not choked.” In a statement following the incident, Bradley maintained Prosser “put his hands around my neck in anger in a chokehold.”

    On Monday night, Bradley called Capitol Police Chief Charles Tubbs to talk to him about the incident. On the morning of Wednesday, June 15, Tubbs joined the justices in a closed-door meeting, where he discussed “issues relating to workplace violence.”

    During the meeting, Chief Justice Abrahamson actually reenacted the incident on Chief Tubbs — no doubt an amusing sight, as the diminutive Abrahamson mimicked choking the tall, portly police chief. During her demonstration, Abrahamson emphasized that Prosser had exerted “pressure” on Bradley’s throat.

    “There was no pressure,” interrupted the justice who had initially broken up the incident between Bradley and Prosser. “That’s only because you broke us apart,” shot back Bradley. This exchange led several meeting attendees to believe Bradley was making up the charge, as they took her rejoinder as an admission that there was no pressure applied to her neck."

    Depending on how accurate the NRO article turns out to be, the Wisconsin event seems to be taking on some clarity.....

    Kinda looks like this I going to take a little more time before it gets kicked out. This is playing into the Dems. hands with the judicial footdragging and negative Rep. publicity.

    Here is the latest.

    < Alleged Wisconsin Supreme Court 'Chokehold' Incident Could Be Decided By...Wisconsin Supreme Court>

    Eric Kleefeld | June 28, 2011, 12:04PM


    <The investigations are now proceeding in Wisconsin of the alleged incident on the Supreme Court, in which liberal Justice Ann Walsh Bradley has accused conservative Justice David Prosser of grabbing her neck in a chokehold, during an argument. As it turns out, for one of the ongoing investigations into the problems on this very polarized and acrimonious state Supreme Court, the ultimate arbiter of the controversy would be...that very Supreme Court.>

    <In addition, the Wisconsin Judicial Commission, which investigates alleged misconduct involving judges, released a statement Monday that it, too, was looking into the alleged incident, and would have no further comment about the case.>

    as you said. Assuming this is an accurate account, this clears up things quite nicely.
