“Supreme Court rejects GOP proposal to elect regional justices”: Sam Wilson of The Helena (Mont.) Independent Record has an article that begins, “The Montana Supreme Court on Friday upheld a district court ruling that struck down an attempt by Republicans in the Legislature to change the way the high court’s justices are elected.”
