ACLU Lawsuit

On October 17, 2017, the American Civil Liberties Union of Montana joined ten Montanans and the City of Missoula in a legal challenge to the constitutionality of 1-183. Hobaugh v. State of Montana asks the State to declare I-183 unconstitutional and prevent it from appearing on the November 2018 ballot. Please click here to be redirected to the ACLU’s Hobaugh v. State of Montana webpage for the most up-to-date information on their efforts.

A final ruling on I-183’s constitutionality will be rendered prior to the November 2018 election.
