Prof. Levinson discussed campaign-finance at the Supreme Court, noncitizen rights

Associate Clinical Professor Jessica Levinson was quoted in the New York Times story, "California Gives Expanded Rights to Noncitizens":

“What is more basic to our society than being able to judge your fellow citizens?” asked Jessica A. Levinson, a professor at Loyola Law School, referring to jury service. “We’re absolutely going to the bedrock of things here and stretching what we used to think of as limits.”

Her op-ed, "Much Ado about McCutcheon" about the McCutcheon v. FEC Supreme Court case challenging aggregate limits on campaign contributiosn, appeared on Pacific Standard. Excerpt:

The breadth of McCutcheon’s likely victory will determine whether individual contribution limits across the country are called into question. At that point the court would have dismantled the majority of the campaign finance restrictions implemented in the wake of Watergate. We would be in an era of restricting the flow of money in politics by disclosing it, but not by limiting the amount given and spent.
