While this may not be of general interest to either of you, I was in the Wisconsin Supreme Court yesterday. Once again, I was impressed with the conduct of the Court in oral argument. I like aggressive questions from an appellate court but the point of questions is to get an answer. I have to say that, while all of them challenged counsel, the Justices (even the ones I often disagree with)seemed to recognize that the point of asking a question was to get a response. You might learn something.
This should be routine rather than refreshing. But there are more appellate judges than you might imagine who don't get that.
And, while I know that it may get off-topic responses, I feel compelled to observe that new Justice Annette Ziegler asked some very good question.
