Panelists talked about the impact of Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission on the election of state court judges. The decision eliminated restrictions on corporate funding for political candidates and causes, citing that the government lacks the right to “prohibit political speech, even if the speaker is a corporation or union.” Following their discussion, panelists responded to audience members' questions.
