Wisconsin: voters halt court's leftward drift

In a race that drew heavy nationwide attention and charges on both sides of underhanded campaigning, conservative challenger Michael Gableman narrowly upset incumbent Wisconsin Supreme Court justice Louis Butler. In the now-familiar pattern of state high court battles, Gableman had been backed by business groups, Butler by trial lawyers and unions. The result may be to tip the balance on the court away from the steady expansion of liability that has characterized its recent decisions in areas like lead paint and medical malpractice.
