Koczak v. FEC


On February 14, 1984, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit denied Mr. Stephen A. Koczak's petition for a writ of mandamus compelling certain FEC actions. (Stephen A. Koczak v. FEC, No. 84-5086, February 9, 1984.) In his suit, Mr. Koczak had asked the appeals court to order the FEC to:

  • Complete, by February 17, 1984, its investigation of a complaint Mr. Koczak had filed with the FEC on January 17, 1984;
  • Report findings of the investigation to the court by February 21, 1984; and
  • Assess for each Democratic primary candidate who participated in the Dartmouth College debate the amount of expenditures permissible in New Hampshire, once services and facilities provided by various groups had been counted against the candidate's New Hampshire spending limit.[1]


[1] Presidential primary candidates receiving public funds must agree to limit spending to a prescribed amount in each state. 11 CFR 110.8(a)(2).
