Wisconsin Supreme Court Candidate Forum January 22nd 2018

With Justice Michael Gableman not seeking a second term on the Wisconsin Supreme Court a contested election has been set up for 2018 to fill this seat. The Federalist Society, committed to raising the profile of judicial elections and increasing voter knowledge of their options in those elections, proudly invites you to attend our candidate forum on Monday, January 22 in Milwaukee. This candidate forum will provide the candidates with the opportunity to discuss their judicial philosophies and their views of the role of the Supreme Court in our system of government.

All three candidates have been invited and we have the confirmed participation of Judge Michael Screnock and Judge Rebecca Dallet. [Update: we are told that Attorney Tim Burns has now also confirmed that he will participate.] Professor Ryan Owens of the University of Wisconsin - Madison will serve as moderator.

The event will take place in the Grand Ballroom of the Wisconsin Club, 900 West Wisconsin Avenue, in downtown Milwaukee.
