Chief Justice Abrahamson becomes longest-serving justice in Wisconsin history

A court system press release notes,
'Chief Justice Shirley S. Abrahamson became the longest serving supreme court justice in Wisconsin history, marking 36 years, seven months and four days of service on April 10, 2013.

'Abrahamson's tenure surpasses the next longest serving justice, Orsamus Cole, who served on the Court from 1855-92, including 12 years as chief justice.'

She will surpass that record in 2016 Marvin Rosenberry's 21 years as Chief Justice in 2017.
