Conservative Activist Wisconsin Supreme Court Justices turn to secrecy, say openness slows things down.

Republicans love power, love secrecy, and love to run things a lot faster and smoother without a lot different ideas, dissent, debate and…democracy.

What should be a body of impartial justices, is anything but, and the conservative majority chose secrecy over sunlight. 
jsonline: Conservative Justice Roggensack wrote the rule change closing Supreme Court meetings, saying it would help the court get decisions out more quickly. The others who sided with her (all conservative activists), and boycotted the portion of Wednesday's meeting along with her, were Justices Michael Gableman, David Prosser and Annette Ziegler.

In dissent were Abrahamson and Justices Ann Walsh Bradley and N. Patrick Crooks.

"No good comes from secrecy in governmental affairs," their dissent said.
