More than 63 percent of the cases that came before the Montana Supreme Court between 1991 and 1999 involved a contributor to the campaign of a sitting justice. This study is part of the Institute's Money in Judicial Politics project designed to examine contributions to high court candidates, how often contributors appear before the court, and how their cases fare in the judicial system.
