U.S. District Court Strikes Down Montana Contribution Limits for State Office

On October 3, U.S. District Court Judge Charles Lovell enjoined Montana’s contribution limits for state office, which are $130 for legislature, and $500 for Governor/Lieutenant Governor. Here is the brief five-page order, which does not explain the judge’s reasoning; that will come later. However, it is clear that the basis is that the limits are too low. The case is Lair v Murry, cv 12-12. The decision also enjoins the limits on how much political parties may give to their own nominees. Thanks to Rick Hasen for this news.
