DISTRICT COURT ISSUES OPINION IN HERRON V. FEC

WASHINGTON – The United States District Court for the District of Columbia issued its Memorandum Opinion Thursday in Herron v. FEC (Case 1:11-cv-01466-RC), denying the plaintiff’s motion for summary judgment and granting the Federal Election Commission’s cross-motion for summary judgment. The text of the Memorandum Opinion may be found here (http://www.fec.gov/law/litigation/herron_dc_memo_opinion.pdf).

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.
