On May 1, 1989, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of New York entered a consent order and judgment in FEC v. Citizens Party (Civil Action No. 87-CV-1577). The judgment declared that the Citizens Party, a political committee, and its treasurer, Kirby Edmonds, knowingly and willfully violated the election law by failing to file four reports in a timely manner: a 1985 year-end report and three 1986 quarterly reports (April, July and October). The consent order and judgment also assessed a civil penalty of $10,000 against the committee. Mr. Edmonds was personally assessed a $500 penalty.
