Wisconsin Supreme Court throws out election lawsuit on ballot drop box

Attorney General Garland says Georgia's new election laws purposefully deny "the rights of Black Georgians to vote."

MADISON, Wis. – The Wisconsin Supreme Court has shot down another election case, offering the latest in a string of narrowly decided cases that found those bringing lawsuits must carefully follow court procedures.  

As with other recent politically tinged cases, this one was decided 4-3 Friday by the court’s liberals and Justice Brian Hagedorn, who was elected in 2019 with the support of Republicans. 

The majority concluded the lawsuit put forward important questions but said it wouldn’t take the case because the issues it raised were not “cleanly presented.” The legal standards that should guide the justices were not clear, the majority wrote.

“While this court must not shrink back from deciding challenging or politically fraught questions properly before us, neither should we be eager to insert ourselves at the expense of time-tested judicial norms,” the majority wrote in its unsigned opinion.
