Abrahamson sues to keep her job for four more years

Patrick Marley reports in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel,
"A day after voters approved changing the state constitution to allow members of the Wisconsin Supreme Court to elect their leader, Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson on Wednesday sued the six other members of the court to hold onto her job.
[...]
"Her lawsuit said she would not have sought re-election in 2009 if there had been a question about whether she could remain chief justice."
