MADISON – Today Dane County Circuit Court Judge Frank D. Remington issued a decision in the legal challenge against the crime victims’ constitutional amendment, commonly known as Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin.
Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin released the following statement:
“We strongly disagree with today’s decision to subvert the democratic process and nullify the will of more than 1 million Wisconsin voters who overwhelmingly supported Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin this April.
“We are grateful the decision is stayed and the amendment remains in effect pending appeal. In the nearly six months it has been in effect, there are countless examples of Mary’s Law for Wisconsin giving victims a stronger voice in the criminal justice process.
“We fully expect this setback will only be temporary. We are confident that Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin will ultimately be upheld, and that this attack on victims’ rights will be defeated.”
