Judge Strikes Down Ohio Law for Second Time
Listen to the Story
A judge has struck down a law that limits the amount contractors can give to the political campaigns of officials with whom they do business.
Wednesday’s ruling is the second against the law by Judge John Bender of Franklin County Common Pleas Court.
He declared the language unconstitutional last year, but an amended version of it was slipped into the two-year state budget in June. However, Bender says that since it is based on language already declared unconstitutional, instead of on existing law, it too is unconstitutional.
The ruling does not affect the rest of the $52 billion budget. Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner, the defendant in the case, said she was pleased the court clarified the law.
