CLC Reply in Further Support of Their Cross-Motion for Summary Judgment

Court Level
District Court

CLC filed a letter today urging the Court to deny the Rio Grande Foundation's (RGF) Motion for Summary Judgment. Santa Fe's laws require that charities and nonprofits who spend more than $250 to support or oppose City ballot propositions disclose their donors to the government. RGF has challenged these laws, claiming that the City's interest in these laws is "minimal" or "nonexistent", and that they present a burden and potentially expose donors to intimidation and harassment. Voters have a right to be informed about the source and amount of money spent on ballot measure advocacy, and the importance of this right has been recognized by the Supreme Court.
