Justice recuses in Wisconsin court choking case


MADISON (WKOW) -- State Supreme Court Justice Ann Walsh Bradley has recused herself in a fading disciplinary case against fellow Justice David Prosser.

The Wisconsin Judicial Commission accuses Prosser of violating judicial ethics after allegedly placing his hands around Bradley's neck during an argument last year.

Prosser's punishment is up to the six other justices.  He asked each of them to recuse themselves from the case.  Three had complied last August, preventing a quorum and essentially scuttling the complaint.

Bradley issued her decision Wednesday.  She still complained in the decision Prosser grabbed her neck, noting police had developed a security plan for her weeks before the incident because Prosser was becoming agitated.

She also ripped Justice Pat Roggensack for minimizing the court's internal conflicts on the campaign trail.
