No decision this week on Citizens United v. FEC

A decision in the "Hillary the Movie" case, Citizens United v. FEC, has been expected since early this month. Monday could have seen an announcement from the Supreme Court, but the justices handed down decisions in three other cases instead. Look for a December decision at the earliest. Meanwhile, USA Today analyzes the impact of a pro-corporate-money decision in the case on governors' races--corporate campaign spending in several states is banned now, but these rules would be overturned if the court finds in favor of Citizens United.
