Justice Prosser demands Walsh Bradley quit discipline case

MADISON (AP) -- Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice David Prosser wants a colleague he's accused of choking to recuse herself from his discipline proceedings.

The Wisconsin Judicial Commission has accused Prosser of violating the judicial ethics code when he allegedly choked Justice Ann Walsh Bradley during an argument last year. Prosser maintains Walsh Bradley charged him and he defended himself.

Three appeals court judges will make a recommendation on discipline to the Supreme Court.

Prosser filed a formal motion Thursday, April 12th, asking Walsh Bradley not to participate, saying she's a witness and has orchestrated a public relations campaign against him.

Messages left with at the Supreme Court's offices seeking Walsh Bradley's response weren't immediately returned.
