First, Davis v. FEC came down against the “Millionaire’s Amendment.” Alito read from his majority opinion. Not terribly surprising, but almost certainly an interesting read.

Contribution limits went down for not being equally applied across the board and “disclosure requirements, which were designed to implement the asymmetrical contribution limits, are as well.

The opinion in Morgan Stanley v. Public Utility can be found here, thanks to SCOTUSblog.
