Republican Party of Minnesota v. White
Like many states, Minnesota limited what judicial candidates could say in their campaigns in order to preserve the impartiality of the judiciary.

The story of this constitutional and political battle is told by Wersal, former party chair Bill Cooper, their attorney Bill Mohrman, state Supreme Court Justices Paul Anderson and James Gilbert, attorney George Soule, local reporter Elizabeth Stawicki, and former Tennessee Supreme Court Justice Penny White.
