Robert Smith talked about U.S. Supreme Court preparations for oral arguments on Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission The case arose from a political documentary called Hillary: The Movie. The film’s producers lost a Federal Election Commission and lower court decision that prohibited them from distributing it on a video-on-demand service on grounds that it violated a McCain-Feingold ban on corporate money being used for electioneering.

He also discussed the Court as Justice Sonia Sotomayor officially takes her seat on the court.

Professor Smith participated via Skype from the C-SPAN Civics Bus in Boston. The bus is traveling to universities and law schools over the next month to promote C-SPAN’s upcoming special on the Supreme Court. close
