MADISON, Wis. — A Wisconsin Supreme Court justice says reports that he placed his hands around a fellow justice's neck during an argument in her office are false.

Justice David Prosser told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that the allegations involving him and Justice Ann Walsh Bradley "will be proven false" once a "proper review of the matter and the facts surrounding it are made clear."

Wisconsin Public Radio and the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism, quoting anonymous sources, reported Saturday that the alleged altercation occurred before the Supreme Court's decision earlier this month upholding Gov. Scott Walker's bill to cut public employees' collective bargaining rights.

Messages that The Associated Press left with several of the justices and Capitol Police Chief Charles Tubbs were not returned Saturday.
