Dorsey & Whitney LLP kicks off the organization of its "Political Law" practice group with an in-depth look at Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission -- the U.S. Supreme Court's recent landmark decision allowing corporations to use their general treasury funds to make independent expenditures in connection with elections. The discussion will include an overview of the decision, including the numerous concurring and dissenting opinions. A distinguished panel will discuss the potential impact and opportunities for Minnesota corporations; pending Minnesota litigation; the potential impact on state, local and judicial races and campaign finance laws; and related legislative initiatives.
