No charge for Wisconsin justice accused in choking
Prosecutor decides not to file criminal charges in Wisconsin Supreme Court choking incident
By The Associated Press

MADISON, Wis. (AP) ' A prosecutor says she won't file any criminal charges against Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice David Prosser over allegations he choked a liberal colleague.

Justice Ann Walsh Bradley accused Prosser of choking her in June as the justices deliberated on a legal challenge to Republican Gov. Scott Walker's contentious collective bargaining law, which strips most public workers of nearly all their union rights.

Sauk County District Attorney Patricia Barrett is acting as a special prosecutor in the case. She says she has reviewed investigators' reports and decided there's no basis to file charges against either Walsh Bradley or Prosser.

She told The Associated Press in an interview that accounts from other justices who witnessed the apparent altercation varied, but she declined to elaborate.
