The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York rejected an appeal from the conservative group Citizens United that sought to eliminate requirements for charities to disclosure their donors, Reuters reports. The group claimed that the requirement violated the First Amendment rights of donors. The decision affirmed a previous one from 2016 in a U.S. District court. Citizens United is the same group behind the landmark 2010 U.S. Supreme Court decision that allowed unlimited independent spending by corporations in political campaigns.
