Gableman Rejects Recusal Request

Michael Gableman, a Wisconsin Supreme Court justice, already is fighting an ethics complaint that accuses him of lying in a campaign ad broadcast on TV. Now he has refused to recuse himself in a criminal appeal, where a Milwaukee lawyer contends Gableman has shown a bias against criminal defendants.

Lawyer Robert Henak maintains that Gableman’s defense of his TV ad reflects the justice’s bias once again, according to a post in the All Politics Blog of the  Journal Sentinel newspaper. A three-judge panel recently heard oral arguments in the ethics complaint against Gableman, and you can learn more about that case from earlier Gavel Grab posts, by clicking here.
