Explaining the Supreme Court ruling on corporations having no privacy right

Those of us who've already read the full 15-page opinion by the Supreme Court on the AT&T argument that corporations have some level of “personal privacy,” will want to look elsewhere for something to do.

For others who wonder how the court could have established two different ideas — that corporations (in the Citizens United ruling from 2010) have a right of free speech and that they don't have a personal level of privacy (in the March 1 ruling, FCC vs. AT&T) — should spend some time with a good legal blog.

Let us recommend the down-the-middle blog views of Scotusblog.com. Its entry from today gives a quick overview of the facts. Nicer yet, the blog post links to about a dozen helpful sources with additional comments on the case.
