MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A lawyer who provided free legal services to state Supreme Court Justice Michael Gableman has resigned from Gov. Scott Walker's judicial selection commission.
Attorney Eric McLeod informed Walker's chief counsel of his resignation in a Dec. 22 letter, according to a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel report.
That's the same day Walker told the newspaper he was considering removing McLeod from the committee.
Walker spokesman Cullen Werwie isn't saying whether McLeod was asked to resign, saying the letter speaks for itself.
Walker is still reviewing whether he'll allow McLeod to continue participating as special counsel to help the state defend itself against certain legal challenges.
McLeod's law firm recently disclosed Gableman did not pay for two years of legal work that McLeod performed as Gableman fought an ethics charge.
