Wisconsin Right to Life — Amicus Brief

Michael Harless Constitutional Law, Election Law, U. S. Supreme Court

Today we filed a Brief Amicus Curiae in the U.S. Supreme Court in the Wisconsin Right to Life case.  The brief asks the Court to reconsider its prior holdings in the McConnell and Buckley cases, and to strike down the Congressional ban on “electioneering communications.”  (We had previously filed an amicus brief in support of Wisconsin Right to Life when the case came before the Court last year.)

The brief was filed in Support of the Appellee on behalf of Citizens United, Citizens United Foundation, Gun Owners of America, Inc., Gun Owners Foundation, Joyce Meyer Ministries, Conservative Legal Defense and Education Fund, Free Speech Coalition, Inc., Free Speech Defense and Education Fund, Inc., The Lincoln Institute for Research and Education, Public Advocate of the United States, DownsizeDC.org, and Downsize DC Foundation.

Oral argument has been set for April 25, 2007.
