Supreme Court New Term-3

FILE - In this Jan. 21, 2010, file photo Citizens United President David Bossie talks on his cell phone outside the Supreme Court in Washington after the court's controversial, 5-4 decision in the Citizens United case, which allowed corporations and labor unions to spend unlimited sums in support of or opposition to candidates, as long as the spending is independent of the candidates. A new campaign finance case, McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission, to be heard Tuesday, Oct. 8, 2013, is the first major case on the court's new term calendar. It challenges the overall limits on what an individual may give to candidates, political parties and political action committees in a two-year federal election cycle.
