And the hits (against fair judicial races) just keep on coming!

While most of the attention today is being paid to the Supreme Court’s decision on immigration, what SCOTUS did not do today may prove to be even more important.  A slim 5-4 majority rejected a request from the state of Montana to hear an argument that would have allowed it to keep its own campaign finance laws intact.  Once again, this “conservative” court is telling an individual state that it knows best, and that despite the Montana Legislature’s views, corporations DO have the right to fund Montana elections virtually without limit.

As an editorial in North Carolina Lawyers Weekly concludes, this translates that our own judicial elections “could become expensive brawls.”
