MADISON – Yesterday, the Wisconsin Department of Justice filed a notice of appeal of the recent decision from Dane County Circuit Court Judge Frank D. Remington in the legal challenge against the crime victims constitutional amendment, commonly known as Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin.
Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin issued the following statement praising the appeal:
“We are grateful that the Wisconsin Department of Justice has appealed the recent decision to subvert the democratic process and nullify April’s overwhelming vote in favor of Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin.
“We are confident in this appeal, and grateful Marsy’s Law remains in effect during this process, continuing to ensure that Wisconsin crime victims have a stronger voice in the criminal justice process.
“We believe Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin will ultimately be upheld, this attack on victims’ rights will be defeated, the will of the voters of Wisconsin will prevail, and equal rights for crime victims will remain a reality here in Wisconsin.”
