They’re both regularly overturned.

Koschnick at an alarming rate if you look at judges across Wisconsin. Koschnick, the Jefferson County Circuit Court judge whose ineffective leadership is causing one senior judge to retire rather than deal with him, distinguished him as a below-average jurist, according to statistics released by the Wisconsin Law Journal.

Turns out since 2000, Koschnick has been overturned by higher courts at a rate that puts him in the bottom third of all circuit court judges in Wisconsin.The records show of 235 circuit court judges, only 78 had a higher rate of being overturned than Koschnick, putting him in the bottom third of all judges ranked.

And for 2008, Koschnick was even lower. His affirmation rate was in the bottom quarter.

The stats are available in the January 26, 2009 edition of the Wisconsin Law Journal.
