Common Cause Hails Supreme Court Decision in Williams-Yulee

WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court has delivered a sensible and much-needed blow on behalf of judicial independence with its decision in Williams-Yulee v. the Florida Bar, Common Cause said today.

“The court today has upheld the ability of states to safeguard the integrity of their courts by putting reasonable limits on fundraising by judges and candidates for judicial office,” said Common Cause President Miles Rapoport.

Thirty-nine states allow voters to elect judges at the polls.
