Delaware Coalition for Open Government meets Citizens United?

Delaware has now petitioned to have its practice of secret trials (we call them "arbitrations" but the lower courts have consistently ruled that they are, in effect, trials) reviewed by the Supreme Court.

The Delaware Coalition for Open Government has won the rounds leading up to this, but now it faces its sternest test:  convincing the robes that rubber-stamped Citizens United that civil transparency should extend to corporations.

Good luck (and I mean this seriously) with that.

Strangely enough I can't find much local coverage of this, or even local politicians willing to speak out against corporate privilege.
