"The Supreme Court's remand requires us to consider two issues in light of White: the constitutional viability of the partisan-activities and solicitation clauses of Canon 5.1 [of the Minnesota Supreme Court's canons of judicial conduct]. ... "In White, the Supreme Court invalidated the announce clause and remanded[.] Upon further consideration of the partisan-activities and solicitation clauses in light of White, ... they likewise do not survive strict scrutiny and thus violate the First Amendment."

"Since our ruling today essentially moots any viable Fourteenth Amendment claims, we leave them for consideration on another day, if necessary."

80 pages, including a lengthy dissent.

   Republican Party of Minnesota et al. v. White, Chairperson, Minnesota Board of Judicial Standards, et al., 536 U.S. 765 (2002) (June 27, 2002) (Legal Information Institute)
