Federal court enjoins Houston blackout period on political fundraising

NLF represents Trebor Gordon, candidate for Houston City Council at-large in November 2015’s elections.  We filed a lawsuit November 4 challenging Houston’s ordinance that prevents fundraising by city candidates until February 1 of the election year.  The fundamental argument is that Gordon has the right to fundraise for his campaign whenever he wants; he does not have to wait until February 1 to start raising money.  Today, the court issued an order granting Gordon’s request for a preliminary injunction.
