And Speaking of Interest of Justice Jurisdiction...

The Supreme Court of Wisconsin just did a very interesting thing: while denying a bid for a new trial on ineffective assistance of counsel grounds, the Court took the unusual step of asking the parties to brief two new questions: Does the Supreme Court have the authority to send the case back to the Circuit Court for reconsideration based on the interest of justice? If so, should it?"

The defendant in the case (pictured below) is a former detective, convicted in 1999 of killing his wife.
