The new Wis. Stat. s. 704.95 is very broad in its application.  It states that any violation of its statutes (as opposed to the administrative code, which is only for residential leases) will be treated as if it were a violation of the administrative code and therefore subject everyone to a double damages penalty and reasonable attorney fees.  It is a strange statute that I imagine will get altered in the coming months.
