State ex rel. Raymond Booker v. Schwarz, 2004 WI App 50
For Booker: John Pray, Legal Assistance Program, UW Law School


¶10 We review the decision of the agency, not that of the circuit court. State ex rel. Warren v. Schwarz, 211 Wis. 2d 710, 717, 566 N.W.2d 173 (Ct. App. 1997), aff’d219 Wis. 2d 615, 579 N.W.2d 698 (1998). Our review is limited to determining whether: (1) the Division stayed within its jurisdiction; (2) it acted according to law; (3) its action was arbitrary, oppressive or unreasonable and represented its will, not its judgment; and (4) the evidence was such that it might reasonably make the decision that it did. State ex rel.
