Wisconsin Appeals Court Reverses Judge’s Order For Speedy Purge: A state appeals court dealt a setback to the conservative group that was seeking a purge of someĀ 209,000 Wisconsin voters before the next election. The group had claimed that the Wisconsin Elections Commission had been slow to remove from the rolls voters who had potentially left the state. The group had secured both a lower court ruling ordering the purge and a finding of contempt against the commission for not following that order right away. Both the order and the contempt finding were reversed by the appeals court on Friday, which put the purge on hold while it considered the case, and the appeals court sent the case back to the judge for its dismissal.
