Former Judge Jerold Breitenbach of Pleasant Prairie, WI; ethical troll


The state of Wisconsin presented Jerold W. Breitenbach with a law license in 1968 after he graduated from Marquette University School of Law.


The Wisconsin Judicial Commission found Jerry guilty of engaging in the following misconduct, all of which took place while he was sitting as a Kenosha County Circuit Court judge.

  • On at least two occasions, Jerry went armed in court with a concealed and loaded revolver
  • On several occasions, Jerry placed his revolver in the wastebasket near the bench in his courtroom
  • During 14 court proceedings, Jerry in courtroom behavior that was loud, angry, impatient, discourteous, intemperate, or lacking in dignity or decorum
  • Failed to conduct his work or his court with dignity and decorum
  • Engaged in conduct causing witnesses or counsel to become embarrassed
  • Failed to grant all parties the opportunity to present, by a full and fair record or transcript, questions exactly as they are presented and determined
  • Failed to provide reasons for disposing of contested cases
  • Willfully and on an aggravated and persistent basis violated six of the standards set forth in the Code of Judicial Ethics by statements he made during proceedings before him as circuit judge

As a direct consequence of his misconduct, the enablers for Judicial Misfits sitting on the Wisconsin Supreme Court punished Jerry by gifting him with a complimentary 2-year suspension from the bench.


It should also be noted that the Wisconsin Court System attorney search website conceals Lee’s misconduct by falsely stating: “Discipline History: There is currently no public disciplinary history for this attorney.”


Apparently, concealing from public searches on its website, the Wisconsin Court System has determined that it will not disclose misconduct meted out to Wisconsin Judges. On the other hand, the same courtesy is not afforded to attorneys disciplined for engaging in misconduct.


As we speak (ca. March 2023), Jerry practices his so-called brand of law with Breitenbach Law Offices in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin.
