Election Contribution Lawsuit Blocked

by

MILWAUKEE (WSAU) An effort by Wisconsin Right to Life to block matching funds for Supreme Court candidates has been rejected by a state appeals court. The anti-abortion group had filed an emergency request for an injunction, but the Milwaukee court ruled against the filing yesterday.

The case is centered on the so-called rescue funds provision, which sends a candidate a matching amount of money if the opponent or a third party group spends more money than they do. The group sued in 2009 claiming its free speech rights were violated in a federal case.
