Missouri Litigators Honored for Work to Protect Initiative Campaign's First Amendment Rights
Lake Rdige, Virginia:
The John Lilburne Award for the month of July has been given to two litigators from Missouri, Dale Doerhoff and Heidi Doerhoff Vollet. Both were honored for their outstanding advocacy on behalf of the Humane Society of Missouri in a court case dealing with the state’s initiative & referendum process. For more information about the award recipients and case check out the press release here.
Recently, Citizens in Charge Foundation issued a coalition letter regarding the case Dale and Heidi are involved in. CICF applauded the Missouri Court of Appeals for temporarily halting the release of sensitive campaign data. The decision is a great win and first step for citizen initiative rights in the state and can be attributed a great deal to the hard work of Dale and Heidi Doerhoff.
