LAW: Cert Granted

Well, the Supreme Court is back in business agreeing to hear 11 cases for the new term even before John Roberts arrives. Two big ones, in terms of issues of public interest, are on campaign finance issues:

*Randall v. Sorrell, Nos. 04-1528, 04-1530, & 04-1697:
Do Vermont's mandatory limits on campaign expenditures by candidates for state and county offices violate the First Amendment? (I noted the constitutional issues with Vermont's Act 64 three years ago here; more here and here).

*Wisconsin Right to Life Inc. v. Federal Election Commission, No. 04-1581: Is the Federal Election Campaign Act's prohibition on corporate disbursements for electioneering communications unconstitutional as applied to certain communications by Wisconsin Right to Life Inc.?
