Waiver of Argument: Constitutionality of Statute – Facial Challenge

State v. Scott R. Nelson, 2007 WI App 2, PFR filed 1/22/07
For Nelson: Joseph L. Sommers

Issue/Holding: ¶7 n. 3:

Because Nelson is making facial challenges to the constitutionality of chapter 980, the State’s assertion that Nelson has waived his constitutional arguments lacks merit. See State v. Bush, 2005 WI 103, ¶19, 283 Wis. 2d 90, 699 N.W.2d 80 (“[B]ecause Bush has facially challenged the constitutionality of chapter 980, his challenge goes to the subject matter jurisdiction of the court [and] … cannot be waived ….”), cert. denied, 126 S. Ct. 631 (2005).
