Another Justice Recuses in Wis. Court Choking Case

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- State Supreme Court Justice Ann Walsh Bradley has stepped out of a fading disciplinary case against fellow Justice David Prosser.

The Wisconsin Judicial Commission has accused Prosser violated judicial ethics when he allegedly placed his hands around Bradley's neck during an argument in front of four other justices last year. Prosser's punishment is up to his fellow justices.

He asked the six other justices to recuse themselves from the case. By last August three had complied, preventing a quorum and essentially scuttling the complaint.

Bradley issued a decision Wednesday complying with Prosser's request. She still complained in the decision that Prosser grabbed her neck and took Justice Pat Roggensack to task for minimizing the court's personality conflicts as she pushes for re-election.
