The panelists will discuss Mitchell v. Wisconsin, in which the high court will consider the constitutionality of a Wisconsin law authorizing warrantless blood draws from unconscious drivers suspected of operating while intoxicated. The court will hear oral arguments in the case on April 23, and is expected to issue a decision in June.

Panelists will be Dr. Michael Fine, UW-Eau Claire professor of political science; Roy La Barton Gay, Chippewa County assistant district attorney; and Michele LaVigne, a distinguished clinical professor at the UW Law School in Madison.
