In their 2nd Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals Reply Brief, Citizens United and Citizens United Foundation rebuff each of the New York Attorney General’s arguments in support of the district court’s order dismissing the groups’ challenge to New York’s donor disclosure requirements for charities. The brief reminds the court that the case in on appeal from a motion to dismiss, not a summary judgment ruling, as the Attorney General’s brief seems to imply. CU and CUF also refute each of the Attorney General’s arguments that seek to water down the First Amendment protections applicable to non-profit community, including their members and supporters. The Reply brief completes briefing in the case. The 2nd Circuit is expected to hear oral argument in the matter during the summer or perhaps fall, with a decision to follow thereafter.
