Other Supreme Court Decisions
ROBERT SIEGEL, host:
And briefly, today's other rulings from the Supreme Court. In a five to four decision, the Court ruled that states can enforce their own consumer laws against federally chartered banks, that those banks are not covered solely by federal jurisdiction. We'll explain that ruling elsewhere in the program. And the court punted on a final issue. It pushed a campaign finance case, regarding a scathing documentary about Hillary Clinton, to the fall. And it said this time, it may consider overturning key campaign finance decisions, including the one upholding the McCain-Feingold Law. So, that case is scheduled to be heard again at the Supreme Court in September.
