McComish v. Bennett: Supreme Court Amici Brief of CLC et al. in Support of Bennett

Feb 22, 2011

Amicus brief by the Campaign Legal Center, Democracy 21, League of Women Voters of the United States, League of Women Voters of Arizona, Public Citizen, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, New Jersey Appleseed Public Interest Law Center and Sierra Club in support of Respondents.
