MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Noted lemon law attorney Vince Megna of Milwaukee says he is running for the Wisconsin Supreme Court.

Megna tells The Associated Press on Friday that he made up his mind within the past 24 hours and he's committed to making a serious run for the office no matter how many other candidates get in the race.

Two others have said they are considering running against Justice Patience Roggensack. But Dane County Circuit Judge Maryann Sumi and Marquette University law professor Ed Fallone say they are still making up their minds.

In recent months Megna has become a vocal critic of Gov. Scott Walker and posted numerous satirical videos online attacking Walker's policies.

Despite the videos, Megna says he is serious about the Supreme Court race.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A law school professor at Marquette University says he is considering running for the Wisconsin Supreme Court.

Ed Fallone said Friday that he is looking at running against Justice Patience Roggensack next year. The election is April 2.

Fallone joins Dane County Circuit Judge Maryann Sumi as potential candidates in the race. Sumi said Thursday she was seriously considering running.

Fallone says one factor that will weigh heavily in whether he gets in the race is whether a primary will be necessary. If more than two candidates run, there would be a February primary.

Fallone has been a faculty member at Marquette for 20 years. He says he's motivated to run because he says the Supreme Court is not currently operating effectively due to personality clashes.
