MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The Wisconsin Supreme Court’s conservative majority has sided with a former member of the state Public Service Commission who did not want to testify in court about his personal relationships with utility companies building a new power line that he voted to approve. Opponents argued the evidence showed that former PSC Commissioner Mike Huebsch had at least an appearance of bias when he voted to approved the $492 million project in 2019 and because of that the permit should be invalidated. But the Supreme Court ruled 4-3 on Thursday that Huebsch should not have to testify about those relationships.
