Mr. Bopp is an election and constitutional law expert with a national reputation. Most recently, he presented oral argument before the US Supreme Court on April 25 in what most commentators have called the most important election law case of the Supreme Court session.
From OMB Watch, where you can also see a complete transcript of the Supreme Court oral argument in the case of Federal Election Commission v. Wisconsin Right to Life:
The U.S. Supreme Court heard oral argument on April 25 in Wisconsin Right to Life's (WRTL) challenge to the constitutionality of a campaign finance law that limits certain broadcasts, including grassroots lobbying messages, during federal campaigns. The issue before the Court is whether the law is unconstitutional as applied to the facts of WRTL's 2004 grassroots lobbying radio ads.
Much of the argument addressed what standard should be used to define "genuine issue ads" entitled to constitutional protection. For nonprofits, much depends on whether the Court sets a clear standard for the 2008 election year. A decision is expected during the summer, which allows enough time for Congress or the Federal Election Commission (FEC) to establish rules that comply with the Court's decision.
Mr. Bopp maintains a national practice in regards to campaign law issues. He has served as Treasurer of the Indiana State Republican Central Committee. He has served as General Counsel of the James Madison Center for Free Speech; has written for National Review and other publications, and has been a guest on numerous public affairs and news programs such as PBS' News Hour with Jim Lehrer.
