CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. — Chippewa Falls officials could expose themselves to legal problems if they OK an ordinance forcing local tavern owners to install surveillance cameras, one legal expert says.

Janine Geske, a distinguished professor of law at Marquette University Law School and former state Supreme Court justice, told Wisconsin Reporter Tuesday a case certainly could be made that the proposed law, as written, is unconstitutional.

“I think there are grounds for that argument,” Geske said.
