National Organization for Marriage, Inc. v. McKee

Petition for certiorari denied on October 1, 2012
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
11-1426 1st Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2012

Issue: (1) Whether the onerous burdens imposed on political committees advocating for or against candidates may be imposed on non-profit organizations speaking about ballot measures; (2) whether the state may regulate as political committees only those organizations that meet the threshold “major purpose” test established by the Court in Buckley v. Valeo and whether the threshold level for such requirements must pass strict or merely exacting scrutiny; (3) whether an organization may be subjected to political committee status based on the state’s interpretation of donor intent; and (4) whether a $100 reporting threshold in the ballot measure context is so low that it does not constitutionally further the state’s informational interest.
