Billboard Disclaimers

Disclaimers are everywhere in campaign finance law.  Leave them off and you run serious risk of a complaint and fine.  Skeptic’s Eye notes one recent case where pre-probable cause and probable cause conciliation failed to conclude the matter.    The case is also an interesting data point for respondents considering “rolling the dice” to “see what a court will say.”  Maybe another point is, as one Commisioner used to say, “What’s the point when you can’t read these disclaimers when you’re going 55 mph down the highway?”
