Federal Judge Denies Request to Enjoin Enforcement of Connecticut Campaign Finance Law
U.S. District Judge Janet Hall has denied an injunction request by the Democratic Governors Association (DGA) to enjoin the state’s campaign finance laws.
DGA argued Connecticut’s campaign finance law limits the ability of political groups to buy independent ads supporting candidates by treating such spending as a contribution to the candidates supported, thus making it subject to campaign finance limits.
In denying the injunction, Judge Hall found the DGA did not establish a likelihood it would prevail in its challenge of the law.
