The Supreme Court has agreed to expand the time allotted for the much-anticipated argument Sept. 9 in Citizens United v. FEC. In addition to 30 minutes for former Solicitor General Theodore Olson on behalf of Citizens United and 30 minutes for Solicitor General Elena Kagan for the FEC, 10 minutes will go to Seth Waxman to argue for the sponsors of the McCain-Feingold campaign finance law and 10 minutes to famed First Amendment lawyer Floyd Abrams to represent Sen. Mitch McConnell in support of Citizens United.
