Editor's Note :

We are expecting one or more decisions in argued cases tomorrow at 10 a.m. We will be live-blogging the opinion(s) as they are released. However, there is no live blog of tomorrow’s oral argument in King v. Burwell. We will have coverage of that argument as soon as possible after it is finished; the transcript should be available tomorrow afternoon, and the audio will be available on Friday.
Wednesday's live blog will be available here.

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.
