Public Records Cases Among Wisconsin Supreme Court’s Docket for 2016-17

The Wisconsin Supreme Court recently released a table of 36 pending cases to be decided in the 2016-17 term. More cases will likely be added. A few of the high-profile cases involve open records and public law enforcement officials.

For instance, this week the court will hear oral argument in Democratic Party of Wisconsin v. Wisconsin Department of Justice, a case that began when Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel was the District Attorney for Waukesha County.
