DENVER (AP) -- The Colorado Supreme Court has ruled that some political attack ads are not subject to contribution limits if they don't urge voters to elect or defeat a particular candidate.
The court on Tuesday upheld an appeals court ruling on a case filed by Colorado Ethics Watch, a political watchdog group, against conservative groups that it believes sent improper campaign mailers in several state races in 2008.
The high court ruled that neither the Senate Majority Fund nor the Colorado Leadership fund were subject to regulation as political committees. The court upheld dismissal of the case for failure to prove a violation had occurred.
