Court

Federal Judge dismisses Shirley Abrahamson’s civil rights case

Justice Shirley Abrahamson

U.S. District Court Judge James Peterson on Friday dismissed Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Shirley Abrahamson’s civil rights case in which she claimed she was illegally removed from her position as chief justice.

Peterson said he wasn’t persuaded by Abrahamson’s case. His ruling puts to rest the liberal justice’s claims that the amendment approved by Wisconsin voters in April unfairly led to her ouster as chief justice.

“This court has been asked whether the immediate implementation of an amendment to the Wisconsin Constitution concerning the structure of its court system offends the United States Constitution. Federal review of the action of a state—acting in its capacity as a sovereign government—is sharply limited, and the court does not require perfection of expression or purity of motive, ” Peterson writes in his conclusion. “The amendment passes constitutional muster, even if implemented immediately to remove Abrahamson from the position of chief justice.”
