(Newser) – Wisconsin cops have launched a full investigation into accusations that State supreme court justice David Prosser put a female justice in a "chokehold," reports Politico. Gov. Scott Walker says the infighting must stop in order to restore public confidence in the court. The sheriff says, “Beginning today, detectives will work diligently to conduct a thorough and timely investigation. “Because this case is in the very early stages, no further information is available at this time."
