STATEMENT FROM A.G. SCHNEIDERMAN ON UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT’S DECISION IN CITIZENS UNITED V. SCHNEIDERMAN

NEW YORK – Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman issued the following statement in response to today’s decision by the United States District Court for the Southern District:

“Today’s decision is a victory for common sense oversight of New York’s vast nonprofit sector. New Yorkers deserve to know their donations are protected against fraud and abuse, and today the court protected that right by dismissing each and every one of Citizen United’s claims.”

The full opinion can be read here.

This case was handled by Assistant Attorney General Linda Fang and Assistant Attorney General Eva L. Dietz, supervised by Deputy Bureau Chief Christine A. Ryan and Bureau Chief Lisa R. Dell, all of the New York City Litigation Bureau, which is overseen by Kent T. Stauffer, Executive Deputy Attorney General of the State Counsel Division.
