MADISON, Wis. - Gov. Scott Walker said the process for reviewing complaints against sitting state Supreme Court justices must be one that instills confidence, but he won't say whether changes should be made.
Walker was asked Tuesday whether he thinks an independent panel out to be established to hear ethics cases against Supreme Court judges.
Two members of the state Supreme Court have recused themselves from considering charges that fellow Justice David Prosser violated judicial ethics when he allegedly wrapped his hands around the neck of Justice Ann Walsh Bradley last year.
If one more steps aside, the case may end due to lack of a quorum.
Walker says he's hesitant to tell a separate branch of government how to operate, but whatever ethics complaint process is in place should instill confidence.
