UPDATED: “Vermont’s campaign finance law survives legal challenge”

[updated and bumped to the top.]


Dean Corren, an unsuccessful candidate for lieutenant governor, sued the state in Vermont’s federal district court for violating his First Amendment rights, alleging that a restriction on fundraising for publicly-financed candidates is unconstitutional. The court issued its decision Tuesday.

The opinion does not yet appear to be on PACER. If anyone has it please send it along.

UPDATE: It appears this AP story is not quite right. What happened is the following. On March 29, the court issued an order denying attorneys fees and a motion for reconsideration of an earlier ruling.
