Buchanan v. FEC


On April 18, 1996, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit granted a joint stipulation to dismiss this case; the parties settled this matter out of court.

Patrick J. Buchanan and his publicly-funded 1992 Presidential campaign committee had petitioned this court to review the FEC's final repayment determination. See the November 1995 Record, page 8, for a summary of the suit filed by plaintiffs. See the October 1995 Record, page 9, for the FEC's final repayment determination.

The Buchanan committee made most of the repayment immediately from an escrow fund previously established, and agreed to pay the remainder of the amount ordered by the FEC, with full interest, within 6 months.
