Justice Brian Hagedorn's dissent is raising doubts about how solid the conservative majority actually is.
Democrats praised Hagedorn for siding with liberal justices against revoking the Democratic governor’s stay-at-home order on Wednesday.
Republicans vented their anger on Twitter. Former Republican state Rep. Adam Jarchow tweeted that conservatives had been “snookered.”
Hagedorn could become a key swing vote on the court in August when the conservative majority drops to 4-3.
