SCOTUS to decide on Citizens United case in 5-4 decision article SCITUATE SCOTUS will decide on a challenge to the U.S. Supreme Court decision to declare a constitutional amendment to limit corporate spending on political speech.
SCOTUS, which has been deliberating on the issue since the early 2000s, will likely rule before the end of the month.
The justices are expected to make a decision in June that could have wide-ranging implications on campaign finance law and campaign finance regulation.
The issue arose in 2010 after Citizens United, a California nonprofit group, won a landmark Supreme Court ruling overturning state limits on corporate contributions to federal candidates and spending on elections.
But a decade later, the Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal from Citizens United supporters challenging a lower court ruling that overturned those limits.
The Supreme Court has been under pressure to strike down a key provision of the 2010 Citizens United ruling.
The provision, known as the “money-in-politics” provision, is a core part of the law and allows the Supreme.
Court to overturn a lower-court ruling that struck down a constitutional restriction on corporate and union spending.
The lower court ruled that it was unconstitutional for the court to intervene in a political campaign.
Citizens United supporters argue that the court should have allowed the Supreme to intervene, because the law was intended to apply only to federal elections.
The Court has previously ruled against a challenge from the group Citizens United in a case challenging limits on union and corporate contributions.
The court’s recent decision has fueled a fight over the law that pits supporters of the Citizens United decision against supporters of campaign finance reform.
