Wisconsin's Supreme Court justices have chosen Annette Ziegler to replace Patience Roggensack as chief justice.
The court voted on the move Wednesday.
The 80-year-old Roggensack has been on the court since 2003 and had served as chief justice since 2015.
Roggensack replaced Shirley Abrahamson after voters approved a constitutional amendment giving justices the power to select their chief.
Before the amendment the chief was automatically the longest-serving justice.
The 57-year-old Ziegler was elected to the Supreme Court in 2007.
