FEC v. National Medical Political Action Committee
On May 27, 1998, the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia entered an order submitted by the parties requiring the National Medical Political Action Committee (NMPAC) and its treasurer to pay a $10,000 civil penalty to the FEC for failing to file 14 disclosure reports in a timely manner during 1992, 1993 and 1994. In a stipulation, both parties had agreed to the facts and to the final order and judgment.
NMPAC had filed all the reports that were due during 1992 and 1993 on May 12, 1994. NMPAC also failed to file on time six other reports due in 1994 and 1995. These tardy filings violated 2 U.S.C. §434(a)(4)(i), (ii), (iii) and (iv).
In addition to finding that NMPAC had violated the Act, the court permanently enjoined the PAC from failing to file reports within the time limits set out by Commission regulations.
