Another justice recuses in Wis. court choking case

MADISON (AP) - State Supreme Court Justice Ann Walsh Bradley has stepped out of a fading disciplinary case against fellow Justice David Prosser.

The Wisconsin Judicial Commission has accused Prosser violated judicial ethics when he allegedly placed his hands around Bradley's neck during an argument last year.

Prosser's punishment is up to the six other justices. He asked each of them to recuse themselves from the case. By last August three had complied, preventing a quorum and essentially scuttling the complaint.

Bradley issued a decision Wednesday recusing herself. She still complained in the decision that Prosser grabbed her neck, noting police had developed a security plan for her weeks before the incident because Prosser was growing agitated.

She also ripped Justice Pat Roggensack for minimizing the court's internal conflicts on the campaign trail.
