Wisconsin Supreme Court

Since his appointment, he has reviewed thousands of  cases, and personally authored dozens of leading legal opinions. His  work on the Court reflects the values that he has displayed throughout  his legal career: relentless logic, rigorous analysis, and hard work,  all done with a friendly, collegial attitude. He’s earned the respect of  judges, lawyers, and law enforcement through even-handed application of  the law to the facts in every case.

Judge Rood also cites her East Coast experience as an assistant attorney general, “with a staff of 90, including 30 attorneys” as a key qualification. “I regularly made tough decisions to make the office work better for clients and the court.”
