Scott Walker 7 MaryAnn Sumi 0

The final nail was dri­ven in the cof­fin of the Wis­con­sin left as the Wis­con­sin supreme court ruled 70 that the court of Mary Ann Sumi flunked the Wis­con­sin Con­sti­tu­tion:

[i]f a court can inter­vene and pro­hibit the pub­li­ca­tion of an act, the court deter­mines what shall be law and not the leg­is­la­ture. If the court does that, it does not in terms leg­is­late but it invades the con­sti­tu­tional power of the leg­is­la­ture to declare what shall become law. This [a court] may not do.”

Even harder for the left not only is Sumi over­ruled but the law by a 43 vote is now con­sid­ered in effect.

That tells you how impor­tant the Supreme Court elec­tion Prosser vs Klop­pen­burg was and the deci­sion to politi­cize the race will be a cause of regret for decades.

Mean­while Legal Insur­rec­tion spikes the ball

Update 2: Pro­fes­sor Jacob­son posts an objec­tion from an aca­d­e­mic col­league in Wis­con­sin and after due delib­er­a­tion gives his mea­sured legal response to the argu­ment.

The final nail was driven in the coffin of the Wisconsin left as the Wisconsin supreme court ruled 7-0 that the court of Mary Ann Sumi flunked the Wisconsin Constitution:

[i]f a court can intervene and prohibit the publication of an act, the court determines what shall be law and not the legislature. If the court does that, it does not in terms legislate but it invades the constitutional power of the legislature to declare what shall become law. This [a court] may not do.”

Even harder for the left not only is Sumi overruled but the law by a 4-3 vote is now considered in effect.

That tells you how important the Supreme Court election Prosser vs Kloppenburg was and the decision to politicize the race will be a cause of regret for decades.

Meanwhile Legal Insurrection spikes the ball

Update 2: Professor Jacobson posts an objection from an academic colleague in Wisconsin and after due deliberation gives his measured legal response to the argument.
