Did One Wisconsin Justice Choke His Colleague?

How did we miss this one? From the Chicago Tribune:

Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice David Prosser won't face criminal charges over allegations that he choked a liberal colleague, a prosecutor said Thursday.

Justice Ann Walsh Bradley accused Prosser of choking her in June as the justices deliberated on a legal challenge to Republican Gov. Scott Walker's contentious collective bargaining law, which strips most public workers of nearly all their union rights. Prosser has denied the allegations. 

On the one hand, it’s nice to see judges being passionate about the law.  On the other hand, civility, civility, civility.
