New Wisconsin justice sworn in during ultramarathon

MADISON, Wis. -- New Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Jill Karofsky finished a 100-mile ultramarathon after being sworn in midrun.

Karofsky, who finished the run Sunday, was sworn in around 1 p.m. Saturday at the 35-mile marker of her route in south-central Wisconsin. State Supreme Court Justice Rebecca Dallet administered the oath of office in Basco.

Karofsky began running Saturday at 6 a.m. WMTV-TV reports the run took her about 34 hours to complete.

She tweeted a photo of herself at mile 99 around 3 p.m. Sunday.

The liberal-leaning Karofsky defeated incumbent Daniel Kelly in April to narrow the court's conservative majority to 4-3.
