Backstory: The Corporation as a "Person"
Thursday, February 04, 2010
The Supreme Court’s recent ruling in the case Citizen’s United v. Federal Election Commission has been criticized as granting corporations the same freedom of speech as human beings. We’ll explore the history of this idea with Doug Kendal of the Constitutional Accountability Center. We’ll also be joined by Richard Briffault, a professor at Columbia Law School, who will talk about the specifics of the Citizen’s United v. Federal Election Commission ruling and what it means for campaign finance law.
