“Wisconsin Supreme Court rules Marsy’s Law was properly enacted into law”

Molly Beck in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

The Wisconsin Supreme Court has rejected a challenge to a constitutional amendment known as Marsy’s Law aimed at expanding and strengthening the rights of crime victims.

The 6-1 decision released Tuesday by the state’s highest court overturned a Dane County judge’s 2020 ruling that determined the measure was improperly enacted and should be rescinded. The court said in its decision the referendum was properly worded and therefore legally adopted.

The 116 pages of opinions in Wisconsin Justice Initiative v. Wisconsin Elections Commission are here. Justice Brian Hagedorn wrote the lead opinion for the majority concluding that the law was a single amendment, not multiple amendments.
