Dallet's victory follows a surprising Democratic win in January in a special election for a state Senate seat held by Republicans for 17 years - an outcome that Walker said then was a "wake-up call" for his party.
Before becoming a judge at the County Circuit Court, Dallet served as an assistant district attorney with the Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office and as an adjunct professor of law at Marquette University Law School.
Walker and his team campaigned heavily for Screnock, while the National Rifle Association backedhim as a "committed judge who will interpret the Constitution the way our Founding Fathers intended".
Running with a tough-on-crime message, Dallet won by almost a 12-point margin with almost all precincts reporting, over the conservative Screnock, 48, in the first statewide general election in the country this year.
"Tonight's results show we are at risk of a #BlueWave in WI", Walker said in a tweet after the results were announced.
On Tuesday, Dallet became the first Supreme Court candidate supported by Democrats to win an open seat since 1995.

Walker is up for is up for re-election to a third term in the fall and asked for donations after Screnock's loss Tuesday to "stand against the flood of outside money", which Walker says is headed towards Wisconsin.
Democrats were looking to build momentum in Tuesday's Supreme Court race, with the hope that it will carry the party into November, when midterm elections take place and when Walker himself is up for reelection.
Dallet's victory cuts conservative control of the state's highest court from 5-2 to 4-3. "People are exhausted of special interests ruling and wanted to speak up".
Dallet's victory gives another indication that the 2018 general election could favor Democrats, following a string of special election victories for Democrats around the country. In Outagamie County, Dallet bested Screnock by 12 percentage points while Walker won that county in 2014 by 20 percentage points.
"Women absolutely need to be at the table", Dallet said.
Dallet, 48, has been a Milwaukee County circuit judge since 2008 and previously worked 11 years as a prosecutor.
