VANDEN BOOGART V. CHRISTENSEN

A small town near Green Bay had an ordinance banning nearly all yard signs.

We sued and obtained a substantial settlement from the Town for its blatant violation of First Amendment rights.

CRG NETWORK V. GAB

Wisconsin law prohibited an independent committee from donating even $1 to a candidate if that candidate had already accepted a certain amount of donations from other committees. This limitation discriminated solely on the basis of when a donation is made. We sued to overturn it and were successful in having it declared unconstitutional.
