Candidates Advance in Supreme Court, Circuit Court Primaries

Pat Roggensack and Ed Fallone will compete in April for the state Supreme Court, while Rebecca Bradley and Janet Protasiewicz will compete for the Milwaukee County Circuit Court Branch 45 seat.

Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Pat Roggensack of Madison and Marquette University law professor Ed Fallone of Whitefish Bay will square off in the April 2 election for the high court after advancing in Tuesday's primary.

With 93 percent of the votes counted statewide as of 10:36 p.m., Roggensack captured more than 63 percent of the ballots cast, while Fallone had 30 percent, according to Patch's media partners at WISN 12.

Vince Megna was eliminated from the race and had garnered about 6 percent of the vote.

Roggensack has served on the state Supreme Court since 2003. Fallone, 48, teaches constitutional, corporate and criminal law. Megna, 68, of Menomonee Falls, is a lemon law lawyer who works for Aiken & Scoptur, S.C. in Milwaukee.

Rebecca Bradley and Janet Protasiewicz will advance to the next step for the Milwaukee County Circuit Court Branch 45 seat, according to our media partners at WISN Channel 12.

Bradley, a Wauwatosa resident, spent most of her legal career in private practice, and most recently as a business litigator with the firm Whyte Hirschboeck Dudek, reported the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Protasiewicz, a Marquette Law School graduate, has been a Milwaukee County prosecutor for nearly 25 years in both civil and criminal court.

Urfer, who was also considered when Donegan retired, currently practices private law as a civil litigator at Nistler Law Office, reported the Shepherd Express.

Fallone appears to be wrong about that...
Greg February 20, 2013 at 05:02 AM
Well, so far 30% of the voters want change, 64% of the voter want him to go away.
Greg February 20, 2013 at 05:45 AM
I don't think that the "Waukesha Co R primary" was a primary.
Bob McBride February 20, 2013 at 12:40 PM
Yep, nice win over a nobody for 2nd place. WTG.

Glad to see the union propped candidate only could get 30% of the vote? Support waning for the whiners?

Adam Neylon...I've met the young man, and he's impressive, Conserative to his core. Look for Adam Neylon to make a positive impact at the Capital.
Greg February 20, 2013 at 04:32 PM
Wisconsin voters are not that stupid. Ann Walsh Bradley is playing the voters for fools. She should do Fallone a favor and stop trying to affect the election with her office activism. Respect is earned, we will show her the respect she deserves when we replace her in 2015. Until then she should put on her big girl robe and get bact to work.

silly Greg Of course it was a primary--a Repug primary! DanielBice Biggest loser of the election: Rep. Joel Kleefisch endorsed 3 of the 5 candidates in 98th District - yet still didn't pick a winner.
ann February 20, 2013 at 07:18 PM
ex union members across the state voted for Roggensack, 64% crushed that liberal toad Fallone. Union power is going down the drain!!! Ding Dong the witch is dead.

Listen to Justice Pat Roggensack and see why she should be re-elected on April 2, 2013. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qtr6tyGBFvE
