Prosecutors filed formal charges against 51-year-old Richard Hitchcock in Oneida County Court on Thursday.

MADISON - Now that Wisconsin has landed a coveted Foxconn plant it will need to quickly transition to a more highly skilled workforce than the assembly lines that established the state's manufacturing legacy.

MADISON - A judge has ordered computer maker Apple Inc. to pay more than $506 million in a patent infringement case brought by the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation after the two sides agreed on final damages.
