Chief Justice Abrahamson statement on passing of Judge John L. Coffey

Madison, Wisconsin - November 12, 2012

Wisconsin Supreme Court Chief Justice Shirley S. Abrahamson issued the following statement regarding the death of Judge John L. Coffey:

“I was fortunate to have served with Justice Coffey during his years on the Wisconsin Supreme Court, before his appointment to the U. S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. His long and dedicated service on both the state and federal bench will long be appreciated by the people he served. His experience earlier in his career as an assistant city attorney, municipal court judge and county court judge gave him a well-rounded perspective on the law. Our sympathies go out to his family.”

Biographical information about Justice John L. Coffey can be found on the court system website.
