Ninth Circuit reverses on disclosure of top contributors by charities

A Ninth Circuit panel today unanimously reversed a lower court decision barring California’s collection of IRS Form 990 Schedule B, which lists the top contributors to 501c3 organizations.  This was an as-applied claim by the Americans for Prosperity Foundation and the Thomas More Law Center, following an earlier facial challenge.

Further coverage (so far) here and here. (One of the articles says that it’s the Koch Brothers’ PAC that has to disclose – but I don’t believe that’s accurate.)

This may not be the last word on this fight.  (h/t Howard Bashman et al.)
