Supreme Court denies petition for certiorari in Stop Reckless Economic Instability caused by Democrats, et al. v. FEC (Case 16-109)

November 7, 2016

On October 31, 2016, the United States Supreme Court denied a petition for a writ of certiorari filed by the plaintiffs in Stop Reckless Economic Instability caused by Democrats, et al. v. FEC. The high court will not review the February 2016 decision of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit that denied the plaintiffs’ First and Fifth Amendment challenges to the differing contribution limits for multicandidate and non-multicandidate political committees.
