U.S. Supreme Court decides major campaign finance case
The Supreme Court today (1/21) entered an opinion in the case of Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission regarding campaign contributions. EL@M generally limits its news coverage to cases involving regulation of the voting process itself (casting, counting, and recounting ballots, as well as registering to vote). Thus, for news coverage of this new campaign finance case, see Rick Hasen's Election Law blog. EL@M opinion commentary, however, covers all aspects of election law, including campaign finance, and thus expect to see some commentary on this important case in our opinion column.
