Wisconsin campaign finance reform struck down

"A federal judge Wednesday struck down a [Wisconsin] state campaign finance reform law passed last summer that reform advocates said was doomed from the start and which Governor-elect Jim Doyle described as a 'sham.'" See the full story on JS Online.

I can't find the act online and the court's website gives me an error message when I try to pull up the PDF of the decision. I will keep trying.

UPDATE: The act is 2001 Wis. Acts 109 available here. The court's web site is still giving me problems with the final decision, but an earlier ruling on the motion to abstain in Wisconsin Realtors Association v. Ponto, No. 02-C-424-C, is available here. The URL for the final decision is here, and you might try it to see if you can get it.
