4th Circuit Will Hear Arguments Tomorrow in Challenge to Federal Corporate Contribution Ban

Bloomberg BNA: “A federal appeals court is set to hear arguments May 18 in the Justice Department’s challenge to a lower court decision that held as unconstitutional the federal ban on corporate campaign contributions (U.S. v. Danielczyk, 4th Cir., No. 11-4667, amicus filed 1/10/12).”

Also: “The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit is considering a challenge to Minnesota’s campaign finance law regulating corporate money, which includes a corporate contribution ban in state campaigns (Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life Inc. (MCFL) v. Swanson, 8th Cir., No. 10-3126, rehearing en banc order 7/12/2011). The en banc appeals court heard arguments in the case, known as MCFL v. Swanson, last September, but has yet to issue a ruling nearly eight months later.”
