The finances of the justices of the Wisconsin Supreme Court – a look at their mandatory filings.
Elected officials in Wisconsin must submit reports on their finances to the state. Here are the filings from the state’s Supreme Court justices.
A justice on the Wisconsin Supreme Court will earn an annual salary of about $185,000 in 2023, more than any other elected official in Wisconsin state government, including the governor, who earns an annual salary of about $166,000.
Justice Ann Walsh Bradley
Justice Bradley, one of the left-wing justices on the new liberal majority, was elected to the Wisconsin Supreme Court in 1995. She was re-elected in 2005 and 2015. Her seat is the next to face re-election when her term expires in 2025.
The former Marathon County judge lives in Wausau.
Justice Rebecca Grassl Bradley
Justice Rebecca Grassl Bradley joined the court in 2015 when she was appointed by Republican Gov. Scott Walker. She won a 10-year term on the court in 2016.
One of three consistently right-wing justices on the court, she will now be in the minority for the first time after the election of Justice-elect Janet Protasiewicz.
The former state Court of Appeals judge and Milwaukee County Circuit Court judge is from Milwaukee.
Justice Rebecca Frank Dallet
Justice Rebecca Dallet was elected to the court in 2018.
The left-wing justice was previously a Milwaukee County Circuit Court judge.
Her term on the Wisconsin Supreme Court expires in 2018.
Justice Brian Hagedorn
Justice Brian Hagedorn was elected to the court in 2019. He had been a judge on the state’s Court of Appeals.
The right-leaning justice has angered Republicans by occasionally siding with the court’s left-wing justices on some issues.
Justice Jill Karofsky

The left-wing justice previously served as a Dane County Circuit Court judge.
Justice-elect Janet Protasiewicz
After winning the open seat in the April election, Milwaukee County Judge Janet Protasiewicz will take her spot on the court on Aug. 1. The left-wing justice’s election swings the court dramatically from the right-leaning to the left.
Chief Justice Annette Ziegler
Chief Justice Annette Kingsland Ziegler was elected to the Wisconsin Supreme Court in 2007 and re-elected in 2017.
The right-wing justice was chosen by a majority of the court to serve as chief justice in 2021, though the new left-wing court majority can and likely will choose their own chief justice at some point.
