On April 9, 2020, the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia granted Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (“CREW”) and Noah Bookbinder (collectively “plaintiffs”) a default judgment against the FEC. The court noted that the Commission failed to plead or otherwise defend in this action.
In September 2019, plaintiffs initially filed suit alleging that the Commission failed to act on their administrative complaints. The court held that the Commission’s failure to act on these complaints is contrary to law and ordered the Commission to conform with the court’s declaration within 90 days.
