“Justices to Decide Whether to Review Restrictions on Campaign Contributions”

Bloomberg BNA: “The Supreme Court is set to consider next month whether to grant review of a constitutional challenge to the century-old ban on corporate campaign contributions (Danielczyk v. U.S., U.S., No. 12-579, cert. petition filed 11/8/12). The case challenging the corporate contribution ban was distributed Jan. 23 for consideration at the justices’ private conference on Feb. 15. The court also received Jan. 23 a reply brief from lawyers representing businessmen William Danielczyk and Eugene Biagi.”

Also at the same conference: a petition (McCutcheon) challenging the aggregate contribution limitation.

A cert grant in both would not surprise me.
