Post Williams-Yulee

Affirming the judgment of the district court denying a motion for a preliminary injunction, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit held that a judicial candidate’s campaign committee failed to demonstrate a likelihood of success on the merits of its claim that the temporal restrictions on solicitation and receipt of campaign contributions violated its First Amendment free speech rights and the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment.  O’Toole v. O’Connor (September 21, 2015).  The 6th Circuit relied on the U.S. Supreme Court’s April decision upholding the personal solicitation clause in Williams-Yulee v. The Florida Bar, 135 S. Ct. 1656 (2015).
