This Week in Campaign Finance Law

The Supreme Court will announce its opinion in Citizens United soon.  (Although I earlier thought it would be this week, there’s a chance the opinion could come Monday, June 29th.)  A year ago (June 26, 2008), the Court held that the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act’s (BCRA) “Millionaire’s Amendment” was unconstitutional in Davis.   Two years ago (June 25, 2007), the Court held that BCRA’s electioneering communications provision was unconstitutional as applied to three Wisconsin Right to Life ads.  What will Citizens United bring?
