Abrahamson Lawsuit Unlikely To Succeed, Says UW-Madison Professor

Scottie Lee Meyers reported at Wisconsin Public Radio
"... [University of Wisconsin-Madison political science and legal studies professor Howard] Schweber said he doesn't find any of the arguments compelling.

"'I think it would be very difficult to show that the bulk of voters in Wisconsin who voted for the referendum had really talked about the question of prospective or retrospective application. And the fact that when one votes for a member of Congress hoping he will be a chair of a committee does not mean he has a right to be the chair of that committee, as Congress has proved many times over,' he said."
