"Corporate Free Speech." Law Offices of Joseph Markowitz. January 21, 2010: "Of one thing we can be certain. This decision opens the door to a lot of new and interesting legal questions, such as whether Congress can devise new restrictions on campaign expenditures without amending the Constitution; whether Congress or the states can re-define what it means to be a corporation so as to limit corporations' ability to participate in electioneering; whether other remedies (e.g., derivative suits, defamation suits) can be pursued against corporations that spend excessively on campaign-related advertising. If government is forced to exit the field, that may leave it up to private parties to fight these and other issues out in the legislatures, the courts and other places."
