For John, BLUF: Biting the hand that feeds you. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Law Professor and Blogger Ann Althouse gave us a look at happenings in Wisconsin, where the Chief Justice of the State Supreme Court, Ms Shirley Abrahamson, has filed a suit against the state in Federal Court, seeking to defer implementation of a recently passed voter initiative, which would change the way the Chief Justice is selected. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel editorializes, "Wisconsin Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson should drop her lawsuit".
I think it is pretty interesting, a Chief Justice suing his or her state over a ballot initiative, although we do have sort of an example in Massachusetts with the Clean Election Law. In this case the Speaker of the House thwarting the will of the People.
Hat tip to Ann Althouse.
