The Supreme Court’s seminal case Citizens United v. FEC was just part of a much broader trend. Coming after the Supreme Court’s decisions in Wisconsin Right to Life and Davis, Citizens United set the stage for additional First Amendment challenges. Some are pure speech cases, such as McCutcheon v. FEC, currently awaiting a decision. Others involve speech of a type that arises under other First Amendment clauses, such as the Establishment Clause case Town of Greece v. Galloway, also awaiting a decision from the Supreme Court. Still other cases trigger free-exercise claims, such as another two currently pending before the Court. First Amendment law is in a fascinating stage of evolution after Citizens United.
