U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell files amicus brief in First Amendment case

Clients U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell

Jones Day filed an amicus brief in the U.S. Supreme Court, on behalf of U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell, in support of charitable organizations challenging California’s requirement that non-profit charities must disclose donor information to the California Attorney General. The brief argues that the Court should reverse the Ninth Circuit’s decision upholding the disclosure requirement because it is a prior restraint on speech that violates the First Amendment and imposes immense burdens on expressive activity.
