D.J.W., 2020 WI 41, where the court reversed the court of appeals and overturned D.J.W.’s involuntary civil commitment based on a lack of evidence of dangerousness at recommitment. Jeremy currently works from the basement of his home in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, where soundproof headphones are necessary to deafen the noise his three kids (5, 2, and 2) make upstairs.
