- On April 8, 2019, two members of the State Bar of Wisconsin filed suit in federal district court in the Western District of Wisconsin. The information here is being provided for information purposes only and is not all-inclusive of filings in the case. All documents are available through the Federal PACER system.
- In response to the lawsuit filed against it, the Board of Governors of the State Bar of Wisconsin voted to defend the authority of the Wisconsin Supreme Court to regulate the profession of law in Wisconsin as an integrated Bar association, a form of association that the Court most recently affirmed in 2018. The State Bar of Wisconsin brings together Wisconsin legal practitioners in an organized bar association to enhance the regulation of the legal profession, improve the quality of legal services, engage in the development of the law, ensure a well-qualified community of lawyers, and educate the public on their rights. With intention, we protect people who seek to avail themselves of the legal process.
