Motion for Miscellaneous Relief
Filed By: Anthony Russomanno
Submit Date: 1-6-2022
Decision: (G) Grant
Decision Date: 1-10-2022
IT IS ORDERED that the motion of intervenors-petitioners, Congressmen Glen Grothman, Mike Gallagher, Bryan Steil, Tom Tiffany, and Scott Fitzgerald (Congressmen) is denied. The Congressmen's map, submitted as Exhibit A to its motion is not accepted and will not be further considered by the court;
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the motion of intervenors-petitioners, Black Leaders Organizing for Communities, et al., is granted. The corrected assembly and senate maps filed as Exhibits C and D to their January 3, 2022 motion shall replace the maps previously filed by these intervenors-petitioners on December 15, 2020; and
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the motion of intervenor-respondent, Governor Tony Evers, is granted. The corrected assembly and senate maps filed in Attachment C to his January 6, 2022 motion shall replace the maps previously filed by Governor Evers on December 15, 2020.
PATIENCE DRAKE ROGGENSACK, J. (dissenting). Redistricting is a new challenge for this court, and as such I would accept all assistance from all parties. The majority seems to hold this view for Governor Evers and the BLOC plaintiffs, but a different view for the Congressmen.
I don't know whether the second map the Congressmen would like to submit will be helpful or not. It is possible that it would have provided no more than what we actually will hear in rebuttal during oral arguments later this month. In addition, I have already reviewed Governor Evers' map and that of the BLOC plaintiffs, as I assume most justices have. Therefore, the court is permitting Governor Evers and the BLOC plaintiffs to file second maps that have very significant changes. For example, Governor Evers'
-Original Assembly map had 174 Municipal splits, but his "corrected" map has 115 Municipal splits.

Motion for Miscellaneous Relief
Filed By: Douglas Poland
Submit Date: 1-4-2022
Decision: (G) Grant
Decision Date: 1-10-2022
IT IS ORDERED that the motion of intervenors-petitioners, Congressmen Glen Grothman, Mike Gallagher, Bryan Steil, Tom Tiffany, and Scott Fitzgerald (Congressmen) is denied. The Congressmen's map, submitted as Exhibit A to its motion is not accepted and will not be further considered by the court;
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the motion of intervenors-petitioners, Black Leaders Organizing for Communities, et al., is granted. The corrected assembly and senate maps filed as Exhibits C and D to their January 3, 2022 motion shall replace the maps previously filed by these intervenors-petitioners on December 15, 2020; and
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the motion of intervenor-respondent, Governor Tony Evers, is granted. The corrected assembly and senate maps filed in Attachment C to his January 6, 2022 motion shall replace the maps previously filed by Governor Evers on December 15, 2020.
PATIENCE DRAKE ROGGENSACK, J. (dissenting). Redistricting is a new challenge for this court, and as such I would accept all assistance from all parties. The majority seems to hold this view for Governor Evers and the BLOC plaintiffs, but a different view for the Congressmen.
I don't know whether the second map the Congressmen would like to submit will be helpful or not. It is possible that it would have provided no more than what we actually will hear in rebuttal during oral arguments later this month. In addition, I have already reviewed Governor Evers' map and that of the BLOC plaintiffs, as I assume most justices have. Therefore, the court is permitting Governor Evers and the BLOC plaintiffs to file second maps that have very significant changes. For example, Governor Evers'
