While reports up until this point remained largely “unconfirmed,” Justice Ann Walsh Bradley’s direct statement that Justice David Prosser placed her in a “chokehold” leaves no doubt that she is alleging assault. Additionally, several other Justices now confirm that an altercation did take place. — ma/RSN
Justices’ feud gets physical. Prosser, Bradley clashed on eve of union ruling.
Supreme Court Justice Ann Walsh Bradley late Saturday accused fellow Justice David Prosser of putting her in a chokehold during a dispute in her office earlier this month.
“The facts are that I was demanding that he get out of my office and he put his hands around my neck in anger in a chokehold,” Bradley told the Journal Sentinel.
Sources told the Journal Sentinel two very different stories Saturday about what occurred. Some confirmed Bradley’s version. According to others, Bradley charged Prosser, who raised his hands to defend himself and made contact with her neck.
