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.
