MD Online Political Advertising law ruled unconstitutional

December 8, 2019
The Fourth Circuit has struck down Maryland's controversial online political advertising law, affirming a lower court decision. This litigation stemmed from Maryland's requirements, passed in 2018, that would force news organizations to publish certain information about online political advertisers on their websites and posed tremendous burdens to newspapers. MDDC Press and its member publications, led in the effort by the Washington Post, were named plaintiffs in the case. Ballard Spahr litigated the case.
