MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice David Prosser wants a pair of rival justices to recuse themselves from his discipline proceedings.
The Wisconsin Judicial Commission has accused Prosser of violating the judicial ethics code when he allegedly choked Justice Ann Walsh Bradley during an argument last year. Prosser says Walsh Bradley charged him and he defended himself.
Three appeals court judges will make a recommendation on discipline to the Supreme Court.
Prosser filed motions Thursday asking Walsh Bradley and her ally, Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson, not to participate in the discipline, saying they're both witnesses to the incident and they're biased against him.

Abrahamson told Prosser's lawyers Thursday the discipline case isn't before the Supreme Court yet and any response would be premature.
In a statement, Walsh Bradley calls Prosser's motion "rife with inaccurate statements and unfounded attacks."
