About the Event
With just a few weeks left in the election to replace Supreme Court Justice Patience Roggensack on the Wisconsin Supreme Court, discussion of the race between former Justice Daniel Kelly and Milwaukee County Circuit Court judge Janet Protasiewicz is intensifying, as is speculation regarding what a change in the Court's composition could mean for the future of Wisconsin. To help Wisconsinites think through the issues, the Milwaukee Lawyers Chapter of the Federalist Society, together with the Milwaukee Lawyers Chapter of the American Constitution Society, is hosting an election debate between two Wisconsin Supreme Court experts, Marquette Law Professor Ed Fallone and Daniel Suhr, managing attorney of the Liberty Justice Center. The debate will be moderated by our Chapter's Vice President of Programming Lucas Vebber, deputy counsel at the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty.
Professor Ed Fallone is an associate professor at Marquette University Law School where he teaches Constitutional Law, Immigration Law, Corporate Criminal Liability, and Securities Regulation. Prof. Fallone earned his undergraduate degree from Boston University, summa cum laude, in Spanish Language and Literature. He also earned his law degree from Boston University, magna cum laude. Prof. Fallone has founded and grown three nonprofit organizations serving the underprivileged in southeastern Wisconsin.

Daniel Suhr serves as Managing Attorney at the Liberty Justice Center, where he spends every day on the front lines of the fight to preserve our rights and liberties.

Daniel formerly worked as policy director for Governor Scott Walker, as chief of staff for Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch, and as a law clerk for Judge Diane Sykes. He holds a B.A. and J.D. from Marquette University, and master’s degrees from Georgetown and the University of Missouri.
