    Notice of Wisconsin Supreme Court Orders

    Final Order: Petition 14-03 Electronic Filing in Circuit Court Proceedings

    This petition was filed by the Committee of Chief Judges and a committee of the Director of State Courts Office to create Wis. Stat. section 801.18. The rule would require a county-by-county transition to all electronic case files in the circuit courts. It would also mandate the use of the court electronic filing system by attorneys and high-volume small claims filers.

    Order Issued: April 28, 2016

    Disposition: Effective July 1, 2016

    Final Order: Petition 14-06 OLR Discretion in Initiating, Disposing of Grievances

    This petition was filed by the Office of Lawyer Regulation (OLR) because the Wisconsin Supreme Court had expressed concern in recent cases that the OLR should exercise more discretion when allegations involve de minimus violations. The OLR contends, if adopted, the petition will permit the OLR to exercise discretion in accordance with the guidance offered in recent supreme court decisions and the recommendations of a consultation report.

    Order Issued: April 21, 2016

    Disposition: Effective July 1, 2016
