Justices reject campaign finance appeal over corporate contributions

US Supreme Court RenovationBy Bill Mears, CNN Supreme Court Producer, WASHINGTON  – The congressional ban on direct campaign contributions to federal candidates by corporations will stay in place after the Supreme Court on Monday refused to hear an appeal from a campaign supporter of Hillary Clinton.

The justices last week accepted for a review a separate appeal over individual donation limits. That case will be argued in the fall, with an expected ruling some months later.

The case denied Monday is Danielczyk v. United States (12-579).
