One of our regular readers (and comment contributor) is Christopher Wren, who works in Wisconsin as an Assistant Attorney General. Here's a bit of news that he has just shared with us in a comment on an earlier post:
“If the judge adopts your brief as the actual opinion, you win.” True, but not permissible here in Wisconsin. The Wisconsin Court of Appeals condemns the practice of a trial court adopting a party’s brief as the court’s opinion. See State v. McDermott, 2012 WI App 14, ¶ 9 n.2.
Thanks for keeping us informed, Chris!
