    • Jim Boll: On and Off the Court
    • As a 13 year old, State Bar President Jim Boll was just as eager to shoot hoops on a basketball court as he was to sit quietly in a courtroom watching a trial.

    • Applying the Substantial Evidence Rule in Administrative Hearings
    • The 2010 court of appeals decision in Williams v. Housing Authority of City of Milwaukee makes clear that administrative agencies must strictly apply the legal residuum rule and base adverse decisions on substantial evidence. It further held that agency decisions may not rely solely on uncorroborated hearsay evidence and determined that an agency may not rely on a default municipal ordinance conviction as evidence or admissions of the allegations in the underlying citation.
