Never has the Wisconsin Supreme Court been more in need of reform. With David Prosser committing serial verbal abuse and grabbing another justice by the throat without experiencing any discipline, it is time to change the composition of the court. Let's elect an adult who will be able to objectively evaluate behavior of justices and hold them responsible to maintain the kind of decorum we expect.
Ed Fallone, a Marquette University law professor who teaches criminal and civil law, is a great candidate. He has experience as a private attorney and serves in leadership positions in community organizations. He has a great reputation.
Fallone recognizes the need for a Supreme Court that exhibits the kind of behavior that it expects from justices in lower courts. After all, it is the Supreme Court which is responsible for administering discipline to judges in lower courts when their behavior is called into question. Therefore, Supreme Court justices should be on their best behavior.
Ed Fallone was a superior law student, having graduated summa cum laude when he obtained his bachelor's degree and magna cum laude when he obtained his doctorate of law.
We must not pass up the opportunity to elect such a qualified lawyer to the court that needs Fallone's intellect, expertise, experience and dedication to even-handed justice.
Let's vote for Ed Fallone for the Wisconsin Supreme Court both in the Feb. 19 primary and in the general election on April 2.
