CLC Disclosure Summary for Legal Challenges to State & Federal Disclosure Laws Post-Citizens United Executive Summary

Contrary to the claims of anti-reform advocates, a review of this litigation reveals that in over 90% of these cases, the courts affirmed the constitutionality of the challenged political disclosure law, in whole or at least in part.
