WEAC Recommends Butler for Supreme Court

The Wisconsin Education Association Council is recommending Judge Louis Butler, Jr., for Wisconsin Supreme Court.

The recommendation follows interviews with candidates and a statewide ballot of WEAC members.

“Judge Butler is a highly respected and experienced candidate who will be an effective member of the Supreme Court,” WEAC President Terry Craney said. “He is a strong supporter of public education and public educators. He will provide some needed diversity of background to the court.”

Butler is currently a municipal court judge in Milwaukee. He has held that position since 1992.

Butler has experience as an appellate attorney and trial lawyer with the State Public Defender’s Office. He was an adjunct assistant professor of law at the Marquette University Law School and has been a lecturer in criminal law for the past 16 years.
