In the latest news from the bizarre story from the Wisconsin Supreme Court — in which liberal Justice Ann Walsh Bradley has accused conservative Justice David Prosser of grabbing her neck in a chokehold, during an argument over the court’s recent decision regarding the upholding of Gov. Scott Walker’s anti-public employee union legislation — it is now being reported that Bradley told Prosser in the days following the incident to seek anger-management therapy.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports: “The request came June 15, when all the justices met with Capitol Police Chief Charles Tubbs to discuss the June 13 altercation between Prosser and Bradley. At least some of Prosser’s fellow conservatives on the court said it would be ridiculous for him to take such courses, the sources said.”

Unnamed sources on Prosser’s side have alleged that Bradley initiated the violence, by charging at Prosser with her fists raised. He then raised his own hands, it is said, to defend himself. Bradley has shot back publicly, saying: “You can try to spin those facts and try to make it sound like I ran up to him and threw my neck into his hands, but that’s only spin.”
