U.S. Supreme Court Refuses to Hear Montana’s Appeal on Whether Parties Can Endorse Judicial Candidates

On February 24, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear Fox v Sanders County Republican Committee, 13-839. The Ninth Circuit had struck down Montana’s law forbidding political parties to endorse or oppose candidates for judge, by a 2-1 vote. Montana had asked for U.S. Supreme Court review, but did not obtain it.

    Richard Winger,

    Please sight the case number of this case, viz., the case in the
    9th circuit on the issue.

    Reason back in 2010 the American Independent Party of California
    State Central Committee voted to oppose the nomination of Nightingale and King, but was advised it could note be done by
    the California Secretary of State.
