Elected officials in Wisconsin must submit reports on their finances to the state. Here is the report from the court’s swing justice.
Justice Brian Hagedorn was elected to the court in 2019. He had been a judge on the state’s Court of Appeals and chief legal counsel to Republican Gov. Scott Walker.
The right-leaning justice has angered Republicans by occasionally siding with the court’s left-wing justices on some issues.
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 will earn an annual salary of about $166,000 in 2023.
