Doe cases back in the spotlight

Since I am the eternal optimist and believer in all things being connected, I am pleased to see that the Wisconsin Supreme Court, with its ethical smudges and donor conflicts of interest just a Google click away, has agreed to hear and rule on three John Doe cases it had delayed considering for a year or so.

The good news in all of this that these issues that highlight Wisconsin's fall from grace to farce will be available for examination by the national political and law media as The Scott Walker Preposterous Pratfall Tour moves to Iowa, New Hampshire and beyond.

These cases going to the Wisconsin Supreme Court is great because it all becomes public then. The hearing can even be had in video besides the written transcripts.

We know the outcome of these cases already. How do judges rule against the parties that bought them? THEY DON'T! It is my understanding that in these 3 cases most of the records are already sealed and thus the public will be kept in the dark. I could reconcile myself to the verdicts that have already been made if the evidence would be brought out in to the light of day for us all to see!!!!
