Big differences separate candidates running for Wisconsin Supreme Court
MADISON - Stark differences are emerging in the views of the candidates hoping to win a 10-year term on the Wisconsin Supreme Court next year.
Burns named former U.S. Justice Thurgood Marshall as the justice he most admires. Marshall was a civil rights activist who won the Brown v. Board of Education school desegregation case before becoming a justice.
Dallet said she admired Sandra Day O’Connor, the first woman to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court and a justice who was known for crafting narrow decisions in closely decided cases.
Screnock selected Antonin Scalia, the justice who died last year who has been lionized by conservatives for his view that courts should interpret the U.S. Constitution as it was intended by its authors.
