VIROQUA — Two people close to Wisconsin’s gerrymandering lawsuit will give an update on the latest events with the case at a community supper at the Viroqua American Legion Tuesday, Nov. 7.

Emily Bunting of Viola, one of the plaintiffs, will speak on her impressions from attending the hearing, and Stephen Schulhofer, professor at New York University School of Law, who wrote one of the briefs, will discuss the legal standard, prospects for success and the path ahead whether the plaintiffs are successful or not.
The event at the Legion, 120 N. Rusk Ave., is free and open to the public. At 5:30 p.m., people attending can purchase tacos for $1.50 at the Legion bar. The program will begin at about 6:15 p.m. Light refreshments will be served. This is the fifth community supper held in communities throughout Vernon County this year by the Vernon County Democratic Party.
