DescriptionMadison - Marquette University Law School professor Ed Fallone announced Monday he is seeking a spot on the state Supreme Court and signaled he would run against the court itself as much as Justice Patience Roggensack.

"The Wisconsin Supreme Court is dysfunctional and the only way to fix it is to change the personalities on the bench," Fallone said in a statement. "I am not beholden to any political party or faction on the court or any special interest group. The people of Wisconsin expect - and deserve - judges who respect the importance of an independent judiciary and who are impartial and fair."

His announcement sets up a likely primary, provided all the candidates turn in at least 2,000 nomination signatures early next month. In addition to Roggensack and Fallone, lemon law attorney Vince Megna has said he is running for the 10-year term on the court.
