David Savage talked about Supreme Court oral argument on whether the court should overrule a 1990 decision, Austin v. Michigan Chamber of Commerce, which upheld restrictions on corporate spending to support or oppose political candidates. He also responded to telephone calls and electronic communications.

This 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. close
