MADISON, Wis. — Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice David Prosser grabbed fellow Justice Ann Walsh Bradley around the neck in an argument in her chambers last week, according to three sources cited in in a story written by the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism and Wisconsin Public Radio.

The report cites unnamed sources that said an argument occurred before the court’s release of a decision last week upholding the publication of a bill that cut nearly all collective bargaining rights of most public employees. During the alleged argument, a physical altercation between Prosser and Bradley occurred in the presence of other justices, the report said.

The report said that Bradley asked Prosser to leave her office and that was when Prosser grabbed Bradley by the neck with both hands.

5 Comments to “Prosser “grabbed Bradley by the neck with both hands,” so didn’t he try to STRANGLE her? (Or just CHOKE her?)”

  • No, no, no…you’ve got it all wrong, this was obviously an attempt to learn her some self-defense! He was merely imparting the wisdom of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu master Hoyce Gracie on how to choke someone out by cutting off the oxygen to the brain by way of first hand example. Silly liberal media!

  • If you believe you “have a civic obligation to help keep the people well-informed, so that American democracy might finally work” then maybe you should keep your commentary out of the headline.

    Not that it makes a difference but choke is a synonym for strangle. Same thing.

  • Your logic is as striking as your sense of humor.

  • I think we will find that Bradley turns out to be a liar in this instant. Prosser who is smaller and older was trying to defend himself.

  • Travis, your wife needs help.
