Cornelia G. Clark

Clerk of Supreme Court

Madison, WI






On June 15, 2005, the Judicial Council filed a petition proposing certain amendments to Wis. Stat.  887.26, relating to requirements for depositions conducted outside the State of Wisconsin. On November 14, 2005, the court conducted a public hearing on this matter. The court and the petitioner concluded that the petition required certain revisions to clarify that  887.26, as amended, would permit the taking of both oral and written depositions.

IT IS ORDERED that the petition is returned to the Judicial Council for further proceedings consistent with this order.

IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the court may hold further proceedings in this matter following its receipt of an amended rules petition from the Judicial Council.

Dated at Madison, Wisconsin, this 20th day of January, 2006.
