None from Wisconsin

The Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty is a conservative, libertarian public interest law firm, based in Milwaukee, that initiates legal actions on a range of public issues. Rick Esenberg was named president and general council of the 501(c)(3) organization, which gets financial backing from the Milwaukee-based Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation. As the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported: "The institute has entered the fray on a range of cases, from Act 10, the legislation that curtailed collective bargaining in Wisconsin for most public sector workers, to voter identification to the proposed Milwaukee streetcar project. In each case, the institute took the conservative side on the issue."
