Judicial decisions influenced by campaign contributions?

A local law professor has completed a study (soon to be published in the Tulane Law Review) that suggests a connection between judicial decisions and campaign contributions.  The finding is based on the use of statistics, which no doubt some folks will say are misleading.  But, statistics aside, no one should be happy about judges taking campaign contributions from lawyers who appear before them.  Least of all judges.
