Zimmerman v. City of Austin, Texas

And in en banc news, the Fifth Circuit will not reconsider its holding that Austin, Texas’ campaign contribution limits are constitutional. In his first opinion on the bench, Judge Ho dissents: “If we’re going to ask taxpayers to devote a substantial percentage of their hard-earned income to fund the innumerable activities of federal, state, and local government, we should at the very least allow citizens to spend a fraction of that amount to speak out about how the government should spend their money.”
