Davidson County Chancellor Ellen Hobbs Lyle has ruled against the state of Tennessee in a case that challenged a law prohibiting nonpartisan political action committees from making campaign contributions to candidates within 10 days of an election, The Tennessean reports. Previously, only committees controlled by a political party have been able to contribute to a candidate 10 days from an election. The lawsuit was brought by a nonprofit called Tennesseans for Sensible Election Laws. The state has promised to appeal the decision.
