The U.S. Supreme Court will hear Citizens United v Federal Election Commission on September 9. The case concerns the McCain-Feingold campaign spending law. Amici curiae briefs are due by the end of the day, Friday, July 31. Already there seem to be at least 20 amici briefs in opposition to the law, 9 in favor, and 4 neutral. Some of the amici briefs are on behalf of many organizations. Some of these briefs are as long as 40 pages. UPDATE: some of these amici briefs had already been filed before the U.S. Supreme Court asked for re-argument.
The Federal Election Commission’s web page has this summary of the case, and links to the various briefs. See here. Thanks to ElectionLawBlog for the link. The U.S. Supreme Court is perhaps fortunate that this is the only case it will be hearing in the next two months.
