Lawyers for Republican gubernatorial candidate Tom Foley filed papers this afternoon asking the Connecticut Supreme Court to block his GOP rival, Michael C. Fedele, from spending $2.18 million in public financing until a review by the high court.

A Superior Court judge this morning rejected an injunction request initiated by Foley and joined by Oz Griebel.

A federal appeals court also issued a decision today upholding much of Connecticut’s public financing law, but striking down the state’s ability to provide supplemental grants to candidates triggered by their opponents’ spending. A detailed story on both decisions and the political fallout is available here.
