MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A Wisconsin Supreme Court justice says another justice choked her during an argument in her office earlier this month — a charge her colleague denies.

Supreme Court Justice Ann Walsh Bradley told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that Justice David Prosser put her in a choke hold after she demanded he leave her office.

Justice Prosser issued a statement saying the allegations "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, have reported that the 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 have not been returned.
