This is the opening Court of Appels brief in a case challengng Washington's false political advertising statute. The client was fined by the Public Disclosure Commission for distributing a flyer which contained statement that her opponent "voted to close a facility for the developmentally disabled" in his district.

The Washington Court of Appeals (Division II) sided with the client and found the statute over-broad. The court found that the statute infringed on the First Amendment rights of political candidates. The Washington Supreme Court later accepted review of the case and affirmed the decision of the Court of Appeals.
