State of Delaware Appeals Decision Enjoining Application of State Disclosure Law


On June 2, the State of Delaware filed its opening brief with the Third Circuit Court of Appeals, urging the reversal of a lower court decision that preliminarily enjoined Delaware’s disclosure law as applied to a nonprofit group, Delaware Strong Families (DSF). The case, Delaware Strong Families v. Biden, involves a constitutional challenge to Delaware's new electioneering communications law.

“The Supreme Court has repeatedly recognized the vital governmental interest in promoting transparent elections,” said Tara Malloy, Campaign Legal Center Senior Counsel. “Delaware’s disclosure law does just that.”

Lawyers from the law firm WilmerHale and the Campaign Legal Center represent the Defendants, Delaware Attorney General Joseph R. Biden III and Delaware Commissioner of Elections Elaine Manlove.
