FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - The city of Fort Wayne is evaluting its next steps after losing a lawsuit over its "pay to play" ordinance.
An Allen County judge ruled the city can't enforce the ordinance.
City council first approved it in 2017 and made some changes last year.
The ordinance limits contracts for professional services to a company if someone made a large contribution to a campaign for city office.
The judge ruled this limits campaign contributions and violates Indiana's home rule.
