WPN V. MYSE

Wisconsin’s now-defunct “Government Accountability Board” imposed burdensome regulations on individuals engaged in even the smallest amount of grassroots campaigning. WILL took over the representation of an original action in the Wisconsin Supreme Court challenging those regulations, but the court split 3-3 and dismissed the case.

VANDEN BOOGART V. CHRISTENSEN

A small town near Green Bay had an ordinance banning nearly all yard signs. Town officials played favorites by enforcing the ordinance against people who opposed wind turbine development, while ignoring signs that supported it. 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.

YOUNG V. GAB

Wisconsin had aggregate campaign contribution limits even lower than the federal limits. When the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the federal limits in the McCutcheon case, we filed this case and overturned the state limits.

MILWAUKEE POLICE ASSOCIATION V. CITY OF MILWAUKEE

Milwaukee refused to follow a law banning municipalities from imposing residency requirements on their employees. We filed an amicus brief urging the supreme court to take the case. When it did, we filed an amicus brief on the merits, and the court agreed with us.
