Younglove v. City of Oak Creek Fire & Police Comm'n

In Younglove v. City of Oak Creek Fire & Police Comm'n, 218 Wis. 2d 133, 579 N.W.2d 294 (Ct. App. 1998), the Court concluded that it had no jurisdiction to review a circuit court order. The Commission argues, however, that even assuming Wis. Stat. 62.13(5)(i) generally precludes our review of circuit court orders in cases of this nature, it does not foreclose our review of "whether the circuit court applied the correct standard of review." In Younglove, however, the Court rejected that very argument, denying a discharged police chief's request that, notwithstanding 62.13(5)(i), the Court "nevertheless exercise our supervisory powers to decide a question that he characterized as publici juris-the standard of review to be applied by the circuit court in an appeal from a board of police and fire commissioners under 62.13(5)(i)." Younglove, 218 Wis. 2d at 136-38.
