Wisconsin Supreme Court justices hear or - Wisconsin's top justices were in Sparta, teaching others about the state's highest court.
The Supreme Court Justices heard arguments for three cases while at the Monroe County Justice Center as a part of the "Justice on Wheels" education program. Before each argument, an attorney talked with the audience on the role the courts have in interpreting law and the process of a legal case.
"We're an appellate court. We're not like the circuit court where the public has access to them on a regular basis. We just hear from lawyers, but here we're able to have the public closer to us, in some ways much more like a circuit court functions,” said Wisconsin Supreme Court Chief Justice Patience Roggensack.
Friday's hearings related to OWI convictions, pay for commuting to work, and prejudice in the Wisconsin Court of Appeals.
