Dole v. FEC
On February 29, 2001, Robert J. Dole and Dole/Kemp '96, Inc., (Dole/Kemp), Mr. Dole's 1996 presidential campaign committee, filed in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit a petition for review of the Federal Election Commission's audit of Dole/Kemp. On January 29, 2001, the Commission made a final determination that the petitioners must repay $1,416,903.40 to the U.S. Treasury.
On April 2, 2001, the court granted a joint motion filed by the petitioners and the Commission to hold the case in abeyance through May 23, 2001, to allow the parties an opportunity to engage in settlement discussions that might eliminate the need for further litigation.
