  • FEC Record: Litigation

Court grants summary judgment in Giffords v. FEC (1:19-cv-01192)

October 22, 2021

On September 30, 2021, the United States District Court for the District of Columbia (the court) granted summary judgment to Giffords (plaintiff) and denied the FEC's motion to dismiss or in the alternative for summary judgment.

Plaintiff filed suit on April 24, 2019, seeking declaratory and injunctive relief against the FEC for an alleged failure to timely act on four administrative complaints filed by plaintiff and the Campaign Legal Center in 2018.

The court concluded that the basic facts of the case were not in dispute and granted summary judgment to the plaintiff, finding that the Commission "unreasonably delayed its consideration" of the administrative complaints.
