State Supreme Court candidate visits Eau Claire

Posted:

Eau Claire (WQOW)- We are less than three weeks away from the Spring Election and on Thursday, a candidate for State Supreme Court made a stop in the Chippewa Valley.

Marquette Law Professor Ed Fallone was in Eau Claire Thursday.  He is running against current Supreme Court Justice Pat Roggensack.  Fallone talked about why he wants to serve on the state's highest court.

"For me it's the fighting, the personal animosity that gets in the way of their decision-making.  I've been very concerned about the influence of special interest money in our judicial elections and I think that's adding to the dysfunction and the mistrust on the court," Fallone points out.  "The final straw really was when the disciplinary proceedings against Justice Prosser fell apart because the justices just couldn't work together to resolve the matter."

The incumbent, Justice Roggensack, was first elected in 2003.  The Spring Election is April 2nd.
