Your Wisconsin Supreme Court majority in the service of its masters

Did not violate whistleblower laws, they rule.

Wisconsin Supreme Court rules state Justice department did not violate whistleblower law.  (, 12/31/2015)
And, of course, her supervisors did nothing about it -- then or before.  In an opinion authored by Justice Annette Ziegler, the court concluded that "an opinion alone, as to the lawfulness or appropriateness of government activity is not 'information'" as defined by the state's whistleblower laws. 
The court found that Schigur's email to her supervisors did not qualify as a "disclosure" of information because her supervisors were already aware of the information she presented.
