On September 26, the Tenth Circuit held an oral argument in Riddle v Hickenlooper, 13-1108. The hearing went well for the plaintiffs. The issue is whether a state can permit individuals to give $400 to legislative candidates nominated in primaries, but only $200 to legislative candidates who were nominated in minor party conventions, or by petition, or who are write-in candidates. The U.S. District Court had upheld the law. The three judges are Neal Gorsuch, Bobby Baldock, and Robert Bacharach. None of them had previously had a case involving minor party or independent candidates.
