Indefensible: WI Supreme Court Won’t Allow Prosecutors to Get Outside PRO BONO Help in Case Against WI Supreme Court

So there’s a potential claim that WI Supreme Court justices should have recused themselves from deciding the John Doe case, given that they themselves benefitted from campaign financing by the same groups in the case.  The district attorneys asked for outside help on those cases, from an outside law firm specializing in SCOTUS appeals which would work pro bono (for free).

And today the Wisconsin Supreme Court, itself the target of the appeal, said no (over Justice Abrahamson’s dissent).

Heck, the Justices won’t even let an outside printing company print redacted portions of the John Doe record for the Supreme Court appeal.

This is totally indefensible.
