  •  Somehow they think that State law trumps (1+ / 0-)

    County law by . . . I don't know size or importance. Therefore they think (I don't say reason for a REASON) a County Judge can't do anything to State officials.

    Now I'm not a lawyer but all the information I've read indicates that laws and the State Constitution were written so that the County was put in charge of patrolling the State government to head off exactly what is happening here.

    •  Its a Wisconsin state court (4+ / 0-)

      County courts are the initial level in the state system - the term of art is "court of original jurisdiction."  Next level is the intermediate court of appeal, and then the Wisconsin Supreme Court.  

      If they are banking on this being just a "county" court and therefore inferior to the state system, then they have very badly miscalculated.
