Question: What cases are tried before the Wisconsin Supreme Court?

Answer: So the Wisconsin Supreme Court decides which cases they want to take based on petitions that are filed before them. The normal procedure to get a decision is that you have a decision from the court of appeals and the person who loses that decision petitions the Supreme Court to take up the case. There are some rare cases where you can bypass the court of appeals and go directly to the Supreme Court with an issue, but that is unusual. And then if the Supreme Court decides to take the case, they will set out a briefing schedule and argument schedule.
