Description

This story reveals a problem within the circuit courts in Milwaukee County. The system bars judges from hearing cases where they have a financial conflict, but leaves the decision to withdraw from the case up to individual judges. Consequently, this investigation found that Milwaukee County Circuit Court judges often make rulings in cases that involve corporations in which they have substantial economic interests.
