Lair v. Motl: Ninth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals Amici Brief of CLC et al. Supporting Motl and Urging Reversal

Court Level
Ninth Circuit

Less than five weeks before the November 2012 general election, the U.S. District Court for the District of Montana struck down Montana’s political campaign contribution limits, which had been in effect since 1995, as unconstitutionally low under the First Amendment. In so doing, the Montana court misapplied relevant Supreme Court precedent as well as the settled law of this Circuit.
