Wis Supreme Court candidates debate in Milwaukee


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice David Prosser and his challenger in the upcoming election will meet for a debate at Marquette University.

Prosser and Assistant Attorney General JoAnne Kloppenburg are expected to discuss their qualifications, judicial philosophies and the important issues facing the state's highest court during a one-hour debate Monday evening.

Kloppenburg has been a litigator and prosecutor at the Wisconsin Department of Justice since 1989. Prosser was appointed to the court in 1998 and elected to a 10-year term in 2001. The election is April 5.

A panel consisting of journalists and Janine Geske, a law professor and former Wisconsin Supreme Court justice, will question the candidates.
