Justice David Prosser, who has already seen his share of press this year after a long-fought, contentious re-election campaign to Wisconsin’s Supreme Court, is again in the spotlight after allegedly grabbing one of his colleagues around the neck during an argument.
The Wisconsin State Journal reported that while arguing with her in her chambers, Prosser grabbed Justice Ann Walsh Bradley by the neck. The three anonymous sources who told the Journal about the incident said they were arguing about the court’s decision on collective bargaining rights.
Wisconsin Public Radio contacted both Prosser and Walsh Friday, both of whom declined to comment on the incident, neither confirming or denying it.
In March, reports emerged of an incident last year, in which Prosser called Supreme Court colleague Justice Shirley Abrhamson a “total bitch” and threatened to “destroy” her.
