(Worthy News) - A Christian legal center appealed to the Supreme Court Monday, challenging California’s law that forces nonprofits to disclose donors to the state attorney general’s office.
The Thomas More Law Center said California’s attorney general has shown an inability to protect the information from disclosure, so forcing nonprofits to turn the information over trashes the groups’ constitutional rights.
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld California’s rules, saying the nonprofits already had to report the same information to the IRS, so reporting it to state was acceptable. Besides, the appeals court said, the risk of disclosure by the state was small. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More...) ]
