This week on RightWisconsin Conversations, Appeals Court Judge Brian Hagedorn joins Editor James Wigderson to discuss a possible run for the Wisconsin Supreme Court. Before being appointed to Appeals Court II by Governor Scott Walker, Hagedorn served as Walker’s chief legal counsel.
Hagedorn explains his judicial philosophy and what he sees as the role of the court. Hagedorn and Wigderson also discuss the significance of running to replace Justice Shirley Abrahamson who is retiring in 2019. They also discuss how Hagedorn’s experience working for Walker during the Act 10 protests has prepared him for a statewide campaign.
Finally, Hagedorn explains what needs to be different in the next campaign for the Supreme Court, and how soon he might announce his candidacy.
