Case Synopsis

Where the first party of a consolidated case waives their right to a peremptory challenge under Supreme Court Rule (SCR) 48.1(5), the waiver applies to subsequent parties on the same side of the consolidation. While parties are still entitled to an additional peremptory challenge when their case is reassigned under SCR 48.1(9), this is only permitted when the first case is reassigned, not the second.
