Fantasy League Update

During the past week, the court filed half a dozen decisions that brought points to four of the league’s five contenders—and with the Commissioner’s Office staffers now back from their team-building retreat, we can update the standings.  Only the Citations failed to score, and, as a result, they found themselves overtaken by the long-dormant Waivers, while slipping farther behind the Writs, who tightened their grip on third place.

More specifically, the Waivers gained 10 points from Reinhart, Boerner, Van Dueren (brief, oral argument, and favorable outcome in Margaret Pulera v. Town of Richmond) and 5 points from Boardman & Clark (brief and oral argument in Thomas F. Benson v. City of Madison).  The Writs added 10 points from Hurley, Burish & Stanton (brief, oral argument, and favorable outcome in The Honorable William M. Gabler, Sr. v. Crime Victims Rights Board) and 1 point from Legal Action of Wisconsin (an amicus brief in State v. Lazaro Ozuna).

Meanwhile, the Affirmed picked up 8 points from Axley Brynelson (brief and a favorable outcome in The Honorable William M. Gabler, Sr. v. Crime Victims Rights Board), but they could not keep pace with the rampaging Gavels of the Public Defender’s Office who added 20 points to their league-leading total: 5 points for a brief and oral argument in State v. Heather L. Steinhardt; 10 points for a brief, oral argument, and favorable outcome in State v. Keimonte Antonie Wilson, Sr.; and 5 points for a brief and oral argument in State v. Lazaro Ozuna.
