Judge Hogan presided in a lawsuit over a recently added restriction to Oregon's initiative and referendum law on paid petition circulators. On March 24, 2010, Judge Hogan ruled that a 2007 law that places restrictions on paid petition circulators did not violate First Amendment rights. The judge found that the restrictions did not place a hardship on "core political speech" and said the restrictions were valid to "ensure the integrity of the petition process".[5]
