Law professor joins state Supreme Court race
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Marquette University law professor Ed Fallone says he’s joining the race for Wisconsin Supreme Court justice. He becomes the third confirmed candidate, ensuring a primary will be needed in February.
Fallone announced his intentions in a statement released Monday. He said he’s running at the urging of people around the state who believe Wisconsin’s high court is dysfunctional.
Fallone will be challenging incumbent Justice Patience Roggensack, who is part of the court’s conservative majority. Lemon-law attorney Vince Megna is also running.
Dane County Circuit Judge Maryann Sumi has said she’s considering entering the race.
Fallone, of Whitefish Bay, promises he’ll be impartial and fair as a justice.
The primary will be held Feb. 19. The two highest vote-getters will advance to the April general election.
