CU & CUF Join With Other Conservatives In Defending Religious Liberty

Citizens United and Citizens United Foundation joins with other conservative groups in filing a U.S. Supreme Court amicus brief defending the right of a Christian baker to refuse to design a custom wedding cake celebrating the wedding of a gay couple.  The brief, which was filed in Masterpiece Cakeshop v.Colorado Civil Rights Commission, contends that Colorado's effort to force the baker to create a custom cake for a gay couple violates the First Amendment's freedom of religion clause and is "an indicia of a totalitarian state, where the state will not allow individuals to be left alone, but must be brought to conform" with the political agenda of the gay rights community.  "The question now," says the brief, "is whether this Court will disregard well-established legal principles in order to throw to the wolves those who continue to embrace Biblical values and teachings."

Citizens United and Citizens United Foundation join amicus brief in support of the 2nd Amendment:

"Citizens United and Citizens United Foundation joined forces with other conservatives in urging the U.S. Supreme Court to review and overturn a recent decision by the 4th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals, which held that civilian possession of certain semi-automatic firearms, such as the popular AR-15, is not protected by the 2nd Amendment.   The brief urges the Justices to 'reign in the lower courts' with legal guidance enforcing the 2nd Amendment as a right of equal magnitude with other constitutional rights."

Citizens United & Citizens United Foundation file amicus brief in support of President Trump’s immigration executive order.

In our "merits" Supreme Court amicus brief, Citizens United and Citizens United Foundation contend that President Trump's Executive Order on immigration does not implicate, much less violate, the First Amendment’s prohibition against the "establishment" of an official government-backed religion.  We also assert that the President had undeniable authority to issue the order because the power to control a nation's borders is an inherent attribute of national sovereignty, and since President Trump was acting pursuant to express congressional authorization his power was at its zenith.

Statement of Citizens United President David N. Bossie on SCOTUS ruling on President Trump’s immigration EO:

"We are pleased the Supreme Court has unanimously ruled that President Trump's immigration executive order can take effect with limited exceptions. From the beginning, we have said that the executive order is constitutional because it was issued as a national security precaution. The President of the United States must be able to secure the homeland from foreign threats. Citizens United will continue to back this EO as it proceeds at the Supreme Court."

In their 2nd Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals Reply Brief, Citizens United and Citizens United Foundation rebuff each of the New York Attorney General's arguments in support of the district court's order dismissing the groups' challenge to New York's donor disclosure requirements for charities.  The brief reminds the court that the case in on appeal from a motion to dismiss, not a summary judgment ruling, as the Attorney General's brief seems to imply.  CU and CUF also refute each of the Attorney General's arguments that seek to water down the First Amendment protections applicable to non-profit community, including their members and supporters.  The Reply brief completes briefing in the case.  The 2nd Circuit is expected to hear oral argument in the matter during the summer or perhaps fall, with a decision to follow thereafter.
