Suit claims governor, AG not enforcing campaign law
The suit accuses Riley and King of not enforcing a law that allows one party in a lawsuit to force judges to step down from cases if the judge has received campaign contributions from the opposing party or their lawyers that exceed a certain dollar amount set by law. The limits are $2,000 for circuit judges, and $4,000 for appeal court judges.
The problem being in that in most major cases you’d be hard pressed to find a judge who hasn’t gotten big contributions from one side or the other. Still, it seems like a pretty good idea to me.
