On Our Terms '97 PAC v. Secretary of State of Maine is a lawsuit that was decided in 1999 by Magistrate Judge David Cohen, a judge in the United States district court for the District of Maine.[1]

Judge Cohen, in his ruling, determined that Maine's law making it illegal to pay campaign workers based on the number of signatures they collected was unconstitutional.

The case is sometimes referred to as "Initiative & Referendum Institute et al v. Secretary of State of Maine".
