Breaking: Without Noted Dissent, Supreme Court Declines to Hear Major Campaign Finance Case Out of Montana

Very good news for supporters of campaign finance contribution limits to candidates: the Supreme Court without noted dissent has turned down Lair v. Magnan, a case which could have been the basis to attack all individual contribution limits to candidates.

I wrote about that case here.

I take this to mean that the Court does not want to wade into these controversial waters right now, not that the Court agrees with the 9th Circuit’s more permissive tests for such regulations.

Whew!
