FEC v. Wolfson



On February 6, 1986, the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, Tampa Division, issued an order granting the FEC's motion for summary judgment in a suit which the FEC had brought against Allen Wolfson on October 7, 1985. (FEC v. Allen Z. Wolfson; Civil Action No. 85-1617-CIV-T-13.)


As requested by the FEC, the court found that Mr. Wolfson had violated the election law by making contributions to authorized candidate committees which exceeded the law's monetary limits (2 U.S.C. §441a(a)(1)(A)) and which were made in the names of other persons (2 U.S.C. §441f).

The court permanently enjoined Mr. Wolfson from further violations of the election law and imposed a $52,000 civil penalty on him.
