- An empty seat on the Wisconsin Supreme Court will be filled by Rebecca Bradley.
Governor Scott Walker appointed Bradley Friday morning.
She is an appeals court judge with conservative backing.
Being appointed to the Supreme Court will give her the advantage of being an incumbent heading into the spring election.
Bradley will finish the final nine months of Justice Patrick Crooks' term.
He died in office last month.
Walker selected Bradley over two other applicants.
Walker had previously appointed Bradley to two other judicial posts.
