Roggensack Says 'Heart Aches' Over Court Attacks

Posted Wednesday, March 6, 2013 --- 2:20 p.m.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Pat Roggensack says her "heart aches" over the approach taken by her opponent Ed Fallone in the race for the state's highest court.

Roggensack said Wednesday during a joint appearance at the Madison rotary that she thinks it's counterproductive for Fallone to base his campaign around what he calls the dysfunction of the Supreme Court.

Fallone says Roggensack needs to be replaced on the court to help reverse what he calls incivility on the court.

But Roggensack says the court is not up for election, just her. She says her nearly 17 years' experience as a judge makes her the better choice.

Fallone has been a law professor at Marquette University for 20 years but has never served as a judge.

The election is April 2.
