Where a North Dakota attorney objected to the use of his mandatory bar fees to oppose a state ballot measure that he supported, the judgment is affirmed because the court properly dismissed the claim that the state’s opt-out procedure violated his right to affirmatively consent before subsidizing non-germane expenditures.
Judgment is affirmed.
