MILWAUKEE -

All three candidates for Wisconsin Supreme Court are scheduled to appear at a public forum together for the first time.

Incumbent Justice Pat Roggensack, law professor Ed Fallone and consumer lawyer Vince Megna will answer questions from a moderator and audience members Thursday in Milwaukee.

The event comes 12 days before the candidates meet in a Feb. 19 primary to whittle the slate from three candidates to two. The general election is April 2.

Recent campaign-finance reports show Roggensack with $55,000 in the bank heading into January. That compares with about $7,000 for Megna and $5,400 for Fallone. Roggensack's totals don't include another $20,000 she received from a national group that advocates for private school vouchers.

No other joint appearances are scheduled before the primary.

    The free ShredFest event Saturday offered anyone with documents containing personal information to shred up to three bags. Destroying documents is one way to protect one's identity and thwart fraudsters.

    More than 1,600 cars stopped by two Madison locations from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. Saturday, and 27 tons of documents were shredded, a Better Business Bureau representative said. The sites were at SVA Certified Public Accountants, 1221 John Q Hammons Dr. and Warner Park, 2930 N. Sherman Ave.
