Wisconsin Supreme Court Rules Marsy's Law Properly Ratified by Wisconsin Voters

Marsy's Law for Wisconsin released this statement in response to the Wisconsin Supreme Court's ruling today that the Wisconsin Constitution was properly amended when ratified by voters.

"Marsy’s Law has been providing crime victims in Wisconsin with a stronger voice and more meaningful rights since its overwhelming ratification vote more than three years ago. Today’s decision by the Wisconsin Supreme Court removes any uncertainty about Marsy’s Law in our state and ensures future generations of Wisconsinites, who find themselves in the criminal justice system through no fault of their own, will have access to some of the strongest victims’ rights in the country. 

"We are grateful for the Court’s decision and look forward to continuing our efforts to ensure crime victims are treated with the fairness, decency, and respect they deserve and our Wisconsin Constitution requires."
