United States Ninth Circuit

Thompson v. Hebdon, 17-35019

Upheld an Alaska campaign finance law's limit on contributions made by individuals to candidates, its limit on contributions made by individuals to election-related groups, and its limit on political party-to-candidate contributions. However, the Ninth Circuit held that a limit on the total funds a candidate may receive from out-of-state residents violated the First Amendment. Affirmed in part and reversed in part, in a constitutional challenge brought by three individuals and a subdivision of the Alaska Republican Party.
