MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Rebecca Bradley's campaign for Wisconsin Supreme Court reserved the website domain name "justicerebeccabradley.com" the day before applications were due for an appointment to the state's highest court she eventually received.

Bradley was widely seen as the favorite for Gov. Scott Walker's appointment, which he announced on Friday. Walker had appointed her twice before to other judicial openings.

Online records show Bradley reserved the domain name before the Supreme Court application deadline.

Bradley's campaign had been using the domain name judgerebeccabradley.com. With Bradley's swearing in on Monday as a Supreme Court justice, it now uses the "justice" site address reserved back on Oct. 1.

Scot Ross, leader of the liberal group One Wisconsin Now, says reserving the website name that early is "further proof the fix was in from the start."

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Rebecca Bradley has been sworn into office as a justice on the Wisconsin Supreme Court.

Court spokesman Tom Sheehan says Chief Justice Pat Roggensack administered the oath of office to Bradley on Monday morning, about an hour before the court heard oral arguments in a lawyer discipline case.

Bradley did not ask any questions during the arguments or make any comments after being introduced by Roggensack.

Bradley had been appointed to the court on Friday by Gov. Scott Walker to fill the remainder of Patrick Crooks' term. He died in office last month.

Bradley had previously announced she was going to run for a full 10-year term to replace Crooks, who was not seeking re-election. Two other judges running for the seat did not seek the appointment that Bradley got.
