Another Annette Ziegler Ethical Problem?

December 7, 2007

Jon Axelrod represents Annette Zielger in her legal problems pending with the Supreme Court, that stems from her days as a circuit judge.  But Axelrod also represents AccuWeb in a case to be heard by the Wisconsin Supreme Court next week.  While I am not sure if Axelrod will present the case in court or not, I do think that Zielger needs to make sure all parties are aware of the situation.  Given that Zielger has a history of ethical lapses I think this is yet another issue we need to be aware of.

    Annette Ziegler was WMC’s candidate for the Supreme Court — just ask them. They should get credit for the success, but not benefit directly from their effort. I am suggesting that all references to Ziegler in the press include her affiliation — like Rs and Ds in Congress. As in “Justice Ziegler (WMC – West Bend)…” That way there can’t be any confusion.

    You are right Patrick, no other Justice on the court has a story like Annette’s. And we can be thankful.

    The key there is: “No other story.”

    There is no other story concerning any other member of the State Supreme Court in my lifetime that rises to the level of ethical lapses and judicial misconduct that Annette Ziegler has demonstrated. Nothing. To pretend that there is not an 800-pound gorilla in the room is just absurd. So I will stay where the story is.

    I also hope from your message that you also agree with people like me that campaign finance reform is needed, and also should include court races.

    Are you going to also comment on the other members of the court who have received contributions from interest groups–like WEAC, for example–who have presented matters to the court, or whose lawyers have made such contributions? Or, is the truth of the matter that you don’t care about a problem, only a personality?
