Administrative probe comes months after criminal investigation was closed

    A second investigation of the Ozaukee County court system, this one an administrative probe, has been launched by Third Judicial Administrative District Chief Judge Jennifer Dorow “to address recent reports and concerns related to court administration,” Court Information Officer Tom Sheehan announced last week.

    Dorow declined through Sheehan to answer questions, including ones about the timing of the new investigation, which comes nearly five months after a criminal probe prompted by
Ozaukee County Circuit Judge Joseph Voiland was closed without conclusions or recommendations and just a week after an Ozaukee Press news story on the 16-month Department of
Justice investigation.

    Dorow, a Waukesha County circuit court judge who as chief judge is responsible for overseeing the courts in Judicial Administrative District III, which includes Ozaukee County,
expects the administrative investigation to “identify any necessary next steps to ensure that the people of Ozaukee County have full confidence in the administration of their courts,” the
Feb. 9 email from Sheehan announcing the probe read.

    A day before the announcement, Dorow met separately with Ozaukee County’s three circuit court judges — Paul Malloy, Sandy Williams and Voiland — and Clerk of Courts Mary Lou
Mueller to inform them she was conducting what was described as an internal review, Mueller said this week.
