Get Corporate Money Out - NationalIntervention.org
In a 4-to-3, right-left vote last June, the court overturned a trial court’s stay of the Republican-backed state law curbing bargaining rights of public employees. A brave county prosecutor made a motion for the justice to recuse himself last month after The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that, secretly and outrageously, the justice received free legal counsel for two years beginning in 2008 from the Wisconsin law firm of Michael Best & Friedrich, which represented the state in defending the law.The justice has a blatant conflict of interest: He owes money to a firm that got his vote in this and other cases. He should have agreed not to sit on any case where the law firm is involved until he pays what he owes.
