Wisconsin chief justice to deliver judiciary address

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — State Supreme Court Justice Shirley Abrahamson is scheduled to deliver her State of the Judiciary Address this week in Wisconsin Dells.

Abrahamson is expected to deliver the speech during the Wisconsin Judicial Conference’s annual meeting on Wednesday morning at the Chula Vista Resort. Most of the state’s circuit and appellate court judges are expected to attend.

Supreme Court officials say Abrahamson’s address, entitled Without Fear or Favor, will focus on ensuring judges remain fair and neutral. The speech will be available on the Wisconsin court system’s website Wednesday afternoon.
