On December 14th, the Wisconsin State Supreme Court issued a 4-3 decision that rejected a bid by the Trump campaign to throw out over 200,000 absentee ballots. But how close was the court to invalidating 200,000 votes? Because the conservative justices haven’t said or written as much about what remedy they would approve so much as their dissatisfaction with specific ways voting was handled.
To answer that question–and also talk about a few other relevant Wisconsin Supreme Court cases–we turned to friend of the show Joe Creitz. Joe is a Madison native and UW graduate who now lives in San Francisco where he runs a law firm, teaches law at the University of California Hastings College of the Law, and blogs and podcasts about legal issues.
