Wisconsin Supreme Court Election Will Have Far Reaching Implications
Recently Kevin Price, Host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business Show, interviewed attorney and HR consultant Hessam Parzivand. Parzivand is a regular on the Price of Business show.
Price and Parzivand recently discussed one of the most expensive Supreme Court Elections in US history.
As one of the most closely watched state-level elections in recent memory, the 2023 Wisconsin Supreme Court election had significant implications and results that will shape the future of the state’s legal landscape.
The election was a heated contest between two candidates: incumbent Justice Rebecca Bradley and her challenger, Judge Lisa Neubauer. Both candidates campaigned hard, with Bradley touting her conservative record and Neubauer positioning herself as a more moderate alternative.
In the end, Neubauer emerged as the winner, marking a significant shift in the balance of power on the court. With Neubauer’s victory, the court now has a 4-3 majority in favor of liberal-leaning justices, which could have major implications for a wide range of legal issues in the state.
One of the most immediate implications of the election is the potential impact on voting rights. Wisconsin has been the site of several high-profile legal battles over voting rights in recent years, and with a more liberal court in place, there could be more opportunities for voting rights advocates to make gains.
The court’s makeup could also impact issues related to healthcare, education, and labor rights. With a liberal majority, the court may be more likely to uphold laws protecting workers and students, as well as those related to healthcare access and affordability. Arguably the most discussed issue is abortion, and this race will likely impact that.
Overall, the 2023 Wisconsin Supreme Court election is a major win for progressives and liberals in the state. It marks a significant shift in the balance of power on the court and could have far-reaching implications for a wide range of legal issues. As the state moves forward, it will be interesting to see how the court’s makeup impacts the legal landscape and the lives of Wisconsinites.
