Wis. Supreme Court Justice not participating in three court case decisions

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A member of the Wisconsin Supreme Court has notified the other justices he won’t be taking part in three cases which had been argued earlier this month.

Justice Michael Gableman made the notification through an e-mail from one of his aides.

Less than half an hour before the first oral argument was given April 10th, the justices were told Gableman wouldn’t be in attendance, “due to unforeseen circumstances.”

The Journal-Sentinel has obtained copies of the e-mail which said Gableman would watch the arguments on the Wisconsin Public Affairs Network.

Four and a half hours later, the message changed, with Gableman saying he wouldn’t be participating.

That leaves six justices deciding the cases, meaning a deadlock is now possible.  A 3-3 vote would mean the ruling by the last court to take action on a case would stand.
