JUDICIAL CANDIDATES-LAWSUIT
Kentucky lawsuit challenges rules on nonpartisan judicial races

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Sunday, July 13, 2014 10:28 AM EDT
LOUISVILLE, Ky.


Judicial candidate Robert Winter Jr. thought he was on solid ground when he sent out fliers before Kentucky's May primary identifying himself as a "lifelong Republican" and three of his opponents as Democrats.

The Courier-Journal reports that soon after the primary, the state's Judicial Conduct Commission sent Winter a letter advising him that three complaints had been filed against him. The commission requested that he respond.

Instead, the Kenton County lawyer sued the commission in federal court. He's demanding that Kentucky's judicial ethics rules be struck down as unconstitutional and that the judicial enforcement agency be blocked from sanctioning him.

Lawyers say the case shows how Kentucky regulators are grappling with how to balance the interest in keeping judicial races nonpartisan with new freedoms given judicial candidates by the courts.
