Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne

The Dane County District Attorney is asking the state Supreme Court to reconsider its decision on the Governor’s collective bargaining changes, and to reconsider the issue without one of the Justices.

Dane County DA Ismael Ozanne filed motions Friday asking the state Supreme Court to vacate its ruling that upheld passage of the law. He’s also asking for Justice Michael Gableman to recuse himself or be disqualified from reconsidering the case.

The move comes following reports that Gableman received free legal services from a lawyer who helped the state defend the passage of Act 10 when it was before the court earlier this year. In his filing, Ozanne says that relationship should have kept Gableman from taking part in the case.

A spokesman for Governor Walker said only “we are confident the Supreme Court got it right the first time.”
