Judge denies Abrahamson request to block amendment

MADISON - A federal judge has denied Wisconsin Supreme Court Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson's request for a temporary restraining order blocking enforcement of a constitutional amendment that could lead to her being demoted.

U.S. District Judge James Peterson issued the order on Thursday.

Abrahamson filed a federal lawsuit on Wednesday, seeking to stop the amendment from taking effect until after her term ends in four years.
