Two Illinois Campaign Finance Reforms Blocked by Federal Judge
The U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois granted a preliminary injunction enjoining recently enacted restrictions on campaign contributions to judicial candidates.
The order by Judge John J. Tharp, Jr. enjoins Illinois from prohibiting judicial candidate political committees from accepting contributions from any out-of-state-person and from imposing limits on the amount a single person can contribute.
The ruling is effective for the 2022 judicial elections.
