Wisconsin State Journal | Supreme Court to hear arguments over whether Tony Evers can have own attorney
The Wisconsin State Journal covers today’s hearing at the Wisconsin Supreme Court in our case, Koschkee v. Evers.
The lawsuit is latest move in a seven-year battle between Evers, the only Democrat leading a major state agency, and Republicans seeking to diminish his authority.
The matter also sets up an election-year battle between Gov. Scott Walker, who is seeking a third-term in the fall election, and his top Democratic challenger.
Walker has blocked Evers’ request to use his own attorney in the suit and is requiring attorneys at the Department of Justice to represent Evers, despite DOJ attorneys disagreeing with Evers’ position in the lawsuit.
