Wisconsin Lutheran Wins Summary Judgment Against City of Milwaukee for Unlawful Property Tax Assessment

Milwaukee County Circuit Court Judge David Borowski granted Wisconsin Lutheran High School (WLHS) summary judgment in an oral ruling on February 2, 2023, ordering a full refund of the 2021 tax assessment plus interest. Following that ruling, the school and the City entered into a settlement agreement refunding the school’s 2022 tax payment and providing for the property’s continued exemption so long as it continues to be used for educational purposes.
