The U.S. Supreme Court, in the McCutcheon v. FEC decision, removed the cap on the number and amount of donations a person can give during political campaigns. Gregory Magarian, JD, election law expert and professor of law at Washington University in St. Louis, says that this decision will have a major impact on campaigns – a much bigger impact than the earlier Citizens United campaign finance decision. This decision “marks then end of campaign finance regulation as we know it,” says Magarian.

Path to Supreme Court Runs Through 'Judicial Monastery'

nelsonbook.jpg

In his latest book, "Pathways to the U.S. Supreme Court: From the Arena to the Monastery," University of Vermont Professor Garrison Nelson, places all 112 Supreme Court justices nominated since the court's inception in 1789 into four categories based on how they reached the nation’s highest court.
