Similar to the New York Attorney General, the California Attorney General is demanding that non-profit organization operating in California disclosure the names, addresses and contribution amounts of their most valuable donors to his office. The U.S. District Court for the Central District of California recently enjoined the California Attorney General from imposing the disclosure obligation on Americans for Prosperity Foundation as a violation of the group’s free speech and associational rights. The Attorney General has appealed that decision to the 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals. Citizens United and Citizens United Foundation have joined forces with the Free Speech Defense & Education Fund and numerous other entities in filing an amicus curiae brief supporting Americans for Prosperity Foundation before the 9th Circuit.
