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.
