Justice sets up campaign website

An Indiana Supreme Court justice facing rare opposition has set up a campaign website.

Justice Steven David must pass a yes or no vote in the Nov. 6 election to remain on the state's highest court. But opponents want David ousted because of a 2011 decision he wrote asserting Indiana residents didn't have the right to resist the police, even if officers illegally enter their homes.

David told The Associated Press on Friday that the ruling had been misunderstood.

One section of the website says judges "don't have the luxury of taking a poll to find out which way they should rule on thorny issues," but must rule based on the facts and the law.

It also features information about David's military record, court decisions and community involvement.
