NOM v. McKee
On January 31, 2012, the U.S. First Circuit Court of Appeals rejected all claims by the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) that the state’s “ballot question committee” law is unconstitutional. That law requires certain individuals and donors who raise or spend money to influence a campaign to register with the state and make periodic reports about its contributors and expenditures.
GLAD filed an amicus brief, in conjunction with Pierce Atwood LLP, in support of the State of Maine arguing that disclosure serves the public interest in transparency and an informed electorate.
