One of the candidates for the Wisconsin Supreme Court says he has no opinion on whether judges should be forced to retire at age 75 or on a proposal to change the way the chief justice is selected.

Rock County Circuit Judge James Daley made the comments in an interview Thursday. He is running against Justice Ann Walsh Bradley in the April 7 election.

Bradley was hearing cases Thursday and not immediately available for comment.

A proposed constitutional amendment allowing justices on the high court to pick the chief justice, rather than it going to the most senior member, was up for a hearing Thursday in an Assembly committee.

Another bill is expected to be introduced that would require all judges to retire after turning 75.
