Conservative groups want the Wisconsin Supreme Court to hear redistricting lawsuits rather than federal judges. During a hearing Thursday, Chief Justice Patience Roggensack said the high court is not equipped to draw new legislative and congressional districts. Roggensack said, “I have a judicial assistant and one law clerk, and myself…and drawing maps would take a huge staff. We don’t have them.” Former Assembly Speaker Scott Jensen and the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty want the justices to change the court’s rules. A decision is expected at a later date.
