Dane County Judge Rejects Kaul’s Request

A judge in Madison has declined to issue a temporary injunction, against subpoenas issued as part of a partisan probe of Wisconsin’s 2020 election.

Michael Gableman, who’s heading the effort, was trying to compel testimony from Meagan Wolf, the head of the Wisconsin Elections Commission.

Attorney General Josh Kaul had asked for a temporary injunction; he said the interviews could not be done in private, as Gableman wanted.

Dane County Judge Rhonda Lanford on Monday ruled against Kaul on the injunction. But Lanford also said there are no grounds for contempt charges against Wolfe, for so far ignoring the subpoena. Judge Lanford also denied Gableman’s motion to dismiss the case.
