The Commission brings enforcement suits in U.S. District Courts when matters are not satisfactorily resolved through the administrative enforcement process and sues to enforce administrative subpoenas. The agency also defends suits contesting its dismissals of administrative complaints, petitions for review of Commission decisions regarding the Presidential public funding program and civil suits challenging the constitutionality of provisions of the FECA and the validity of the Commission's regulations.
