“Appeals Court Vacates Constitutional Ruling On Washington State Grass-Roots Lobby Law”

Bloomberg BNA: “A federal appeals court has reiterated a previous ruling that two conservative groups had no legal standing to challenge the constitutionality of Washington state’s grass-roots lobbying law, but the appeals court also vacated a lower court decision that the state law was consistent with the First Amendment (Many Cultures, One Message v. Clements, 9th Cir.,No. 11-36008, 3/28/13). The appeals court said in a March 28 ruling that it was not necessary to address constitutional issues in a case that was disposed of because of lack of standing. The action left the way open for a possible future challenge to Washington’s grass-roots lobbying law.”
