Statement of Michael Boos, Citizens United Vice President and General Counsel, on today’s ruling by a three judge panel of the 2nd Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals upholding the dismissal of the organization’s legal challenge to the New York Attorney General’s requirement that charities disclose their top supporters to his office as a pre-condition to soliciting contributions in New York.
Michael Boos statement:
“We are extremely disappointed by today’s adverse ruling. We suffered a similar fate when we challenged the federal ban on corporate sponsored political speech, but were ultimately vindicated at the U.S. Supreme Court in the landmark Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission decision. As to today’s ruling, we are carefully evaluating all of our options, including a possible petition for a rehearing before the full appeals court or an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. We will be making a decision in due course.”
