Republican Party of Kentucky v. FEC


On October 26, 1992, the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia dismissed this suit without prejudice, as stipulated by both parties. (Civil Action No. 91-1064 (SSH).) The Republican Party of Kentucky had filed suit alleging that the FEC had failed to act on the administrative complaint the Party had filed in October 1990. The complaint alleged that the Democratic Party of Kentucky had exceeded the limits on contributions and party expenditures.

In stipulating to the dismissal of the suit, both parties agreed to the following terms:

  • During the next 18 months, the Republican Party of Kentucky will not file a new action alleging that the FEC failed to act on the administrative complaint.
  • Every six months, the Party will have access to a chronology of actions the FEC has taken on the complaint.
  • The court's September 1991 protective order will remain in effect until the FEC has taken final action on the complaint. Under the protective order, any information on the complaint that is released to the Party must remain confidential, and all court filings related to the complaint must be retained under seal.
