Judd v. FEC


Keith Judd, a Texas resident and registered Presidential candidate in 2000, asked the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit to find that the Presidential Primary Matching Payment Account Act is unconstitutional and to award him public funding for the election equal to that awarded President Bill Clinton during his 1996 reelection effort. On April 9, 1998 , the court dismissed Mr. Judd's petition for lack of prosecution.

On August 20, 1998, the appeals court denied Mr. Judd's motion to have the court reexamine its decision to dismiss this case for lack of prosecution.

On November 4, 1998, the court denied Mr. Judd's request for a rehearing and a rehearing en-banc of the court's decision to dismiss the case.

On February 22, 1999, the court denied a motion by Mr. Judd to vacate its ruling in the case.
