SG supports fast consideration of WRTL case

SCOTUSblog reports: U.S. Solicitor General Paul D. Clement, representing the Federal Election Commission, on Thursday urged the Supreme Court to hear and decide during its current Term a significant new test case on a federal ban on election-season campaign ads. In a response to a motion to expedite filed last Friday, the SG suggested that the Court move swiftly to consider the Commission's appeal (and, presumably, a coming separate appeal by members of Congress who support the ad ban) so that the case is resolved well in advance of the 2008 election season. -- FEC supports fast review on campaign ads
