LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Little Rock attorney Matt Campbell has filed a circuit court petition challenging the Arkansas Ethics Commission’s recent decision on a complaint he filed against Arkansas Treasurer Dennis Milligan.

Milligan signed a settlement letter with the commission last week that issued a letter of warning and a $400 fine for four reporting issues on his campaign finance reports.

The commission found no probable cause among dozens of other allegations in the complaint filed by Campbell. Under new ethics rules, Milligan was allowed to correct some of the reporting errors rather than receive sanctions.

Campbell argues that the rules went into effect in 2015, so Milligan should not have been allowed to correct his 2014 reports. Milligan’s attorney says the allegations were baseless regardless of the new rules.
