"The seminal case on statutory interpretation in recent years is State ex rel. Kalal v. Circuit Court for Dane County, 2014 WI 58. . . . In Kalal, the court emphasized the importance of statutory text when it embraced the principle that a court's role is to determine what a statute means rather than determine what the legislature intended." - Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice David Prosser, 2014.
