RACINE, WI – Judge Lisa Neubauer, Chief Judge of the Wisconsin Court of Appeals, announced today that she has been endorsed by an additional 60 judges in the last 60 days. She now has earned the support of more than 260 current and former judges since she announced her campaign in mid-summer. Her entire list of endorsing judges can be found on her website, and includes 21 current and former members of the Wisconsin Court of Appeals.

Judge Neubauer reached this milestone of judicial support the same week that The National Judicial College released a survey where an overwhelming ninety percent of judges across the country who responded to the survey agreed that judicial independence is currently threatened.

“As I travel the state and talk to my colleagues on the bench, I hear the same thing: we need courts that are fair, impartial, and independent,” said Judge Neubauer. “We need to protect the independence of the court for the people of Wisconsin.”

“More than ever, our courts need leadership from people like Judge Neubauer who understand the importance of judicial integrity and independence,” said Judge Brian Blanchard of the Wisconsin Court of Appeals, “We need Judge Neubauer as our next justice on the Wisconsin Supreme Court.”

“Judge Neubauer has a ten-year track record of independence as a judge,” said Judge Kitty Brennan of the Wisconsin Court of Appeals. “I am proud to join hundreds of my colleagues from the bench in supporting Judge Neubauer’s efforts to bring that independence to our state’s highest court.”

After being appointed to the Court of Appeals, Judge Neubauer was elected in 2008 and re-elected in 2014, and has served as Chief Judge since 2015. She had almost two decades of experience as a litigation attorney at Foley & Lardner before joining the appellate court and also served as a law clerk for Judge Barbara Crabb, then-Chief Judge of the United States District Court, Western District of Wisconsin. Judge Neubauer lives in Racine with her husband, Jeff, and they are the proud parents of three children.
