Why Richard Posner is retiring: He’s concerned about how courts treat pro se litigants

In case you missed it, the New York Times ran an interview with him last week. And now the ABA Journal has this story: “Posner says most judges regard pro se litigants as ‘kind of trash not worth the time.'” Both mention his forthcoming book on the topic. He predicts that it will make his colleagues uncomfortable.  That’s sure to boost sales!

If you know of a pro se appellant or respondent with a civil case in the Wisconsin Court of Appeals or Supreme Court, feel free to refer them to the Wisconsin State Bar’s Appellate Help Desk: appellatehelp@gmail.com or 414-671-9041. Again, that’s for civil appeals in Wisconsin appellate courts.
