NYS AG Wins Battle with Citizens United


On February 15, 2018, New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman released the following statement after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit dismissed Citizens United’s lawsuit against New York State’s law that requires disclosure to the Attorney General’s Charities Bureau of the largest donors to non-profits:

“Today’s ruling affirms that Citizens United can no longer shroud its biggest donors in secrecy. State law demands that organizations like Citizens United disclose their biggest donors to regulators so they can police fraud and abuse in the non-profit sector. We are pleased the court agreed with our position and rejected Citizens United incorrect First Amendment and Due Process claims. Today’s ruling is a victory for all those who believe in fairness across this vital sector of New York’s economy.”
