Conservatively Speaking

State Senator Mary Lazich (R-New Berlin) represents parts of four counties: Milwaukee, Waukesha, Racine, and Walworth. Her Senate District 28 includes New Berlin, Franklin, Greendale, Hales Corners, Muskego, Waterford, Big Bend, the town of Vernon and parts of Greenfield, East Troy, and Mukwonago. Senator Lazich has been in the Legislature for more than a decade. She considers herself a tireless crusader for lower taxes, reduced spending and smaller government.

Supreme Court overrules Sumi

The State Supreme Court overruled Dane County Circuit Court Judge Maryann Sumi in a ruling released Tuesday afternoon.

The Supreme Court ruling states “ … all orders and judgments of the dane County Circuit Court in Case No. 2011CV1244 are vacated and declared to be void ab initio.” Void ab initio means “to be treated as invalid from the outset.”

Furthermore, “This court has granted the petition for an original action because one of the courts that we are charged with supervising has usurped the legislative power which the Wisconsin Constitution grants exclusively to the legislature.”

Wisconsin Act 10 is now law.
