A Better Wisconsin Together Statements on Justice Protasiewicz Doing Her Job

MADISON, Wis. — In response to Justice Janet Protasiewicz declaring she will not recuse in a case seeking fair maps but instead will do what she was elected to do – hear cases – the following are statements from Chris Walloch, executive director of A Better Wisconsin Together:

“In April, more than one million Wisconsinites elected Justice Janet Protasiewicz to the Wisconsin Supreme Court, and now she is doing what the people elected her to do: hear cases where our rights and freedoms are at stake.

“In the face of unprecedented and baseless impeachment threats directed at her by right-wing extremists with partisan motivations, Justice Protasiewicz remains steadfast in her commitment to upholding her oath and hearing all cases with fairness and impartiality.”
