- Newly elected Wisconsin Supreme Court Chief Justice Patience Roggensack says she doesn't want to pick a fight with other justices, even though her selection as its leader is contested.
Roggensack spoke Tuesday about her election last week as chief by four of the seven members of the court.
Longtime Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson contends she remains the chief justice and is fighting over the issue in federal court.
Roggensack says ``there's no doubt about it'' that she's chief justice, saying she is meeting with court staff.
Roggensack says she is keeping her same court office and is ``not interested in making this transition any more difficult for Justice Abrahamson.''
Roggensack says, ``I have no interest in picking a fight with any of my colleagues.''
