Many apply for Wisconsin Federal Judge, U.S. Attorney Positions

The names of applicants to fill the seat of the federal judge for the western Wisconsin district based in Madison were released on Tuesday.  The names of those hoping to become the next U.S. Attorney in the Milwaukee-based eastern district were also released. 13 people are applying for the judge’s position.  10 are applying for the U.S. Attorney spot.

The highest profile candidate to seek the judge’s position is former state Supreme Court Justice Louis Butler. 

The judicial opening is due to the retirement of U.S. District Judge John Shabaz. The 77-year-old resigned in January.

Along with Butler, four other judges applied. They are U.S. Magistrate Judge Stephen Crocker, District 4 Appeals Court Judge Paul Higginbotham, La Crosse County Circuit Judge Ramona Gonzalez and Eau Claire County Circuit Judge Lisa Stark. 

Six Madison attorneys applied. They are Eric Barber, James Cole, William Conley, Kendall Harrison, Stephen J. Meyer and James D. Peterson. 

Other applicants were John Schweitzer, an attorney with the state Department of Regulation and Licensing, and Stephen Sinnott, an assistant U.S. attorney in Madison.
