WILL President and General Counsel Rick Esenberg proffers an opinion on the potential for profligate spending in SCOWI elections.

“Esenberg said Supreme Court races became salient about 10 years ago, after the court made key decisions that set policy.

“Whether you like what they did or disliked what they did, they were significant decisions that appear to have represented a departure from past practice,” Esenberg said. “That had a significant policy impact, and when courts do that, people become very interested.””
