Appeals Court Vacates Verification Process Decisions

[Madison, Wisc…]  An Appeals Court vacated an order from Judge Mac Davis regarding the recall petition verification process on Friday.

In January Davis had decided recall groups could not intervene in a case between the Friends of Scott Walker and the Government Accountability Board.  Davis also determined the GAB had to make an effort to find duplicate and fictitious names in the recall petitions.

The Court of Appeals decision undoes Davis’s decisions.  The case will go back to Davis, where recall groups can now participate, and the case over the verification process essentially starts over.
