Another last-minute committee hearing on Wisconsin legislation altering trial and appellate courts’ jurisdictions

I mentioned at the start of June what appeared to be an effort to alter the Wisconsin courts’ jurisdictions as a result of suits over the recall/collective bargaining bill adopted earlier in the year.

The bill was added at the last minute (June 1) to the agenda for a June 2 hearing before the Senate Committee on Judiciary, Utilities, Commerce, and Government Operations.

Another last-minute addition was done this week. According to the announcement for today’s Senate Committee on Judiciary, Utilities, Commerce, and Government Operations hearing,  SB 117 was added to the list of items to be heard on June 27, the day before the hearing. Video of the event will be posted here later today.
