Candidates for the Louisiana Supreme Court raised increasing amounts of money during the 1990s, but less than 15 percent of the Court's caseload during that time involved campaign contributors. This study is part of the Institute's Money in Judicial Politics project examining who contributes to judicial races, how often contributors appear before a judge to whom they contributed, and how their cases fared in the judicial system.
