For the past 15 years, Seattle has distributed a voter’s pamphlet, complete with statements from each candidate running for office explaining his or her position. One thing banned from those statements, however, is mention of any other person who is running for office. Grant Cogswell, candidate for City Council, took issue with this restriction, and this past week, won his case; the ban has been struck down as unconstitutional by U.S. District Court for the region. And why do I mention this at all? Because my brother was the attorney who argued this baby. Kick ass.


My congrats to Noah! Changing the damn world, one case at a time.
