About this Episode

A story reported by DeFour and Wisconsin Watch’s Matt Mencarini. DeFour’s package outlines how the court has become increasingly fractured in the past 20 years, even among justices who agree on the outcome of a case. That leaves an opening for a liberal majority — if Judge Janet Protasiewicz wins — to revisit previous cases. In the second story, DeFour and Mencarini explain the cases that liberals and conservatives say illustrates the “judicial activism” that both sides routinely rail against.
