Petitioners’ Response to Motion to Recuse Justice Protasiewicz

On August 22, 2023, the Wisconsin Legislature and Republican Senators filed a motion to recuse Justice Protasiewicz from the case under the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment and Wisconsin state law. On August 29, Petitioners filed a response in opposition to the motion to recuse, arguing there is no legal or ethical basis for Justice Protasiewicz to recuse under federal or state law for campaign contributions made by a non-party to the litigation or remarks made during a campaign that do not pre-judge any merits issues.
