This term may prove to be very telling at the U.S. Supreme Court, as insiders debate the question of whether the Court, under Justice Roberts' leadership, is moving in a more conservative direction. On Wednesday, the Supreme Court heard oral argument in the FEC v. Wisconsin Right to Life case, which presents the question whether a federal statute prohibiting a corporation's use of general treasury funds to finance "electioneering communications" is unconstitutional.
According to The New York Times, "The Supreme Court put defenders of the McCain-Feingold campaign finance law on the defensive on Wednesday in a spirited argument that suggested the court could soon open a significant loophole in the measure."
ABC News Correspondent Jan Crawford Greenburg writes in her new book, Supreme Conflict: The Inside Story of the Struggle for the Control of the United States Supreme Court, that the Rehnquist Court, despite having seven Republican nominees, proved deeply disappointing to conservatives and examines whether the newly constituted Court will result in a consequential shift.
Recently, Ms. Greenburg joined CFIF Corporate Counsel and Senior Vice President Renee Giachino to discuss the book, the high court's newest members and the controversial decisions still to be decided this term.
