MADISON, Wis. — Incoming Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Rebecca Dallet says she looks forward to building strong relationships with her fellow justices after a tumultuous campaign in which she blasted the court as being “broken and dysfunctional.” Dallet’s arrival Aug. 1 will weaken conservative control from 5-2 to 4-3. The court has struggled with internal conflicts in recent years that have spilled into public view. Court watchers say they hope Dallet’s arrival, coupled with the retirement next year of Justice Shirley Abrahamson, will lead to a more collegial court. Dallet says she’s spoken with every justice and she is “confident that I can have a good working relationship with each of them.” But former conservative Justice Jon Wilcox says it “may take some doing” for Dallet to overcome the rhetoric of the campaign.
