Wisconsin Supreme Court refuses to hear lawsuit challenging voucher school program

Associated Press

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The Wisconsin Supreme Court has declined to hear a lawsuit brought by Democrats seeking to end the state’s taxpayer-funded private school voucher program. The lawsuit could be refiled in county circuit court, as both Democratic Gov. Tony Evers’ administration and Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos had argued. The Supreme Court rejected it on Wednesday without comment in an unsigned, unanimous order. Democrats who brought the lawsuit asked the state Supreme Court to take the case directly, which would have resulted in a much faster final ruling than having the case start in lower courts.
