Here come the judges. Door County will be hosting judges from around the state for the annual Wisconsin Judicial College starting next Monday. Judges are required to attend the five-day state program once every six years or during their term. Door County Circuit Court Branch 1 Judge Todd Ehlers says the judges will be instructed on issues of evidence, criminal law, civil law, and family law. He shares the most useful part of past judicial colleges he has attended.
Judge Ehlers, the chairperson of the judicial conduct committee, will also be making a presentation Tuesday morning to the group on ethics issues. The judicial college, which rotates around the state every year, will be held at Stone Harbor Resort in Sturgeon Bay from next Monday morning through noon on Friday.
