Broadband Grant Lawsuit by Access Wisconsin is Dismissed

On Friday, November 11, Dane County Circuit Court Judge Peter Anderson dismissed a lawsuit by Access Wisconsin against UW-Extension and others, thus allowing a federal Building Community Capacity through Broadband (BCCB) grant project to proceed. The grant will fund broadband internet expansion in four areas of Wisconsin. 
“This work by the University of Wisconsin-Extension and our many community partners is vital to the future of the Wisconsin economy,” said Ray Cross, chancellor of the University of Wisconsin-Extension and University of Wisconsin Colleges.  “I hope that now government, the university, private businesses and communities in every corner of the state will be able to work together to assure Wisconsin is connected to the global economy.”
