CASE ENTRY

Americans for Prosperity v. Becerra

Unlike almost every other state, California requires charities to disclose their donor information to state regulators, who have carelessly made hundreds of thousands of these confidential documents available online. Charity says this chills contributions and people associated with it have received actual death threats. A First Amendment violation? Ninth Circuit: We’re convinced that California will be more careful in the future, so there’s nothing to worry about. (We discussed New York’s similar requirement on the podcast.)
