WHAT IS WRITTEN ABOUT: James Shellow

 

James M. Doyle writes
When Dave was the chief public defender for Wisconsin, he had the responsibility for appointing private lawyers to murder cases. One of the cases was a police shooting: a Milwaukee cop had been shot and killed by a young African American man, and a media firestorm had erupted. Dave appointed Jim Shellow, one of America’s premier trial lawyers, and Shellow set about investigating the case. The investigation indicated that the dead cop had been a virulent racist.

At the widely publicized trial Shellow painted a horrifying portrait of the dead cop, proved the cop was the aggressor, and won an acquittal. Shellow’s fee was enormous, and it was well earned. Dave paid it, and the news of the price tag showed up in the media.
