An audio record of oral arguments from earlier in the day in a case over campaign finance reform legislation were played over still images of the participants.

Arguments focused on limits to unregulated, or “soft money,” campaign contributions, new restrictions on some forms of campaign advertising, and campaign contributions by minors.

This hearing took place in an unusual session prior to the normal Supreme Court term and lasted four hours. It also was only the third time audio of a hearing had been released on the day of the oral arguments. close
