Justice Prosser Says Dissention On Supreme Court Overblown

Posted: Friday, April 5, 2013 -- 11:22 a.m.

APPLETON, Wis. (AP) -- A Wisconsin Supreme Court justice says discord on the high court is greatly exaggerated.

The court's dissension became an issue in the recent race for the seat held by Justice Pat Roggensack, who retained her job. During an appearance in Appleton Thursday, Prosser told The Post-Crescent that talk of disunity and disagreements is "in many ways overblown."

Justice Ann Walsh Bradley accused Prosser of trying to choke her during an altercation at the Capitol in 2011 over a new law that cut collective bargaining for most state employees. No disciplinary action was taken against either judge.

Prosser says it's important to talk about differences on issues and not differences in personalities.
