Minnesota Citizens Concerned For Life (MCCL) v. Swanson: Brief of State Appellees

Court Level
Eighth Circuit

Brief of State Appellees. Appellees argue that the Plaintiffs’ claims mischaracterize the Citizens United decision and erroneously assert that Citizens United implicitly overruled certain prior Supreme Court precedent. Numerous court decisions have unanimously rejected these arguments. Moreover, it is argued that the district court correctly reasoned that the remaining Dataphase factors also support the denial of Plaintiffs’ motion. The district court’s decision should be affirmed.
