Yes. I know Wisconsin is a comparative negligence state and if one of the (D) is held 51 percent or greater, then they are joint and severaly liable.

Yes. In pure comparative negligence regimes, the plaintiff's recovery is first reduced by the percentage of his negligence contributing to the harm. Then, the defendants are joint and severally liable for the rest.
