[ARCHIVED] Judge Hovland Blocks ND Election Day Campaign Ban

Federal Judge Daniel Hovland said in a decision today that the state of North Dakota can't enforce the law that bans Election Day campaigning. Judge Hovland says the ban violates the free-speech rights of candidates and North Dakotans in general. His order grants a request for a preliminary injunction that bars state and local prosecutors from acting against anyone who violates the ban.
