As citizen in the State of Wisconsin, we count on our public officials to uphold the law and keep our streets and communities safe. We also expect that these officials will follow that same law they are upholding without "cutting corners" as a means to an end.

The importance of following the proper procedures was  brought to the forefront during a liquor license revocation in Racine, Wisconsin. In the case, a local police chief filed an unsworn complaint against an area night club, seeking the revocation of the establishment's liquor license. The chief's complaint, which he filed as a private citizen, suggested that the night club was in violation of state and local laws, was a "disorderly or riotous, indecent or improper house" and "created undesirable neighborhood problems."

Too Many Jack McCoys - Not Enough Sonny Seilers

Law & Order's Jack McCoy never took a deposition. Can you imagine McCoy's self-important image convincing any plaintiff or defendant that he should relax and tell his story? A deposition that would normally take two hours is now destined to take all day. Instead, McCoy should take a page out of Sonny Seiler's book...

Who is Sonny Seiler? Jim Williams' attorney in Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. Sonny appears to be just a good ole boy that tends to focus more on the efforts of the football team for the University of Georgia, than he does on his case. But does Sonny win his case? Of course he does. Imagine the impossible . . . that an attorney would actually want to attend a college football game . . . when his client is in jail . . . (Note: Sonny Seiler actually appeared in the movie in the role of Judge White, the presiding judge at the trial).


In light of the shocking mass shootings at the Brookfield, Wisconsin based, Azana Spa, GRGB attorney, Frank Gimbel offers insight into the Wisconsin laws pertaining to restraining orders.
