In her final round-up of the year, Edith Roberts provides a brief look at a few articles that have been published regarding the current activity of the Supreme Court as well as historical markers evident in the last decade. The round-up features articles from The Hill, the Harvard Law Review Blog, and Bloomberg Opinion. Below is an excerpt from the original post.

Hebdon “is the latest example of the Roberts Supreme Court’s hostility to reasonable money in politics reforms like contribution limits, and its insistence on ignoring empirical data about campaign finance.”
