Susan B. Anthony List v. Driehaus

By June 16, 2014

In Susan B. Anthony List v. Driehaus, the Supreme Court rules that pre-enforcement challenges to campaign finance law are justiciable when circumstances indicate that threatened enforcement of the statute is sufficiently imminent. In a unanimous ruling, the Court also ruled the prospect of enforcement was not “imaginary or speculative” and that petitioners had shown sufficient injury for pre-enforcement review. Similarly, the Court ruled that the petitioners’ suit was prudentially ripe.
