Court of Appeals issues opinion in CREW, et al., v. FEC

June 15, 2018

WASHINGTON – The United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit today issued a Memorandum Opinion and Per Curiam Judgment affirming the District Court’s decision in CREW, et al., v. FEC (17-5049),, granting the Commission’s motion for summary judgment and denying the plaintiffs’ motion for summary judgment. The D.C. Circuit found that the Commission’s dismissal of CREW's administrative complaint against the Commission on Hope, Growth and Opportunity in Matter Under Review 6471 was not contrary to law.

The Federal Election Commission (FEC) is an independent regulatory agency that administers and enforces federal campaign finance laws. The FEC has jurisdiction over the financing of campaigns for the U.S. House of Representatives, the U.S. Senate, the Presidency and the Vice Presidency. Established in 1975, the FEC is composed of six Commissioners who are nominated by the President and confirmed by the U.S. Senate.
