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.
