US court won't decide status of anti-Hillary movie

US court won't decide status of anti-Hillary movie

The U.S. Supreme Court says it has not reached a decision whether a scathing documentary about Hillary Rodham Clinton that was shown during the presidential campaign season should be regulated as if it were a campaign ad.
Chief Justice John Roberts announced that the court would hear arguments again on Sept. 9.
A conservative not-for-profit group had wanted to air ads for the movie in important Democratic primary states without complying with federal campaign finance laws.
Lower courts have said the movie looked, sounded and acted as a long campaign ad.
At the time of "Hillary: The Movie," the ex-New York senator was competing with President Barack Obama for the Democratic presidential nomination. She is secretary of state.
