Coolidge Reagan Foundation v. FEC

Case Summary

 

On May 22, 2019, the Coolidge Reagan Foundation filed suit in the U. S. District Court for the District of Columbia to challenge the Commission’s alleged failure to act on its administrative complaint.

On August 15, 2019, the Coolidge Reagan Foundation filed a Notice of Dismissal without Prejudice.

Background
The court complaint states that the Coolidge Reagan Foundation filed an administrative complaint with the FEC on August 1, 2018, alleging that Christopher Steele, a British national; Hillary for America (“HFA”), Hillary Clinton’s principal campaign committee in the 2016 presidential election, the Democratic National Committee (“DNC”), and Perkins Coie, HFA and the DNC’s law firm, violated various provisions of the Federal Election Campaign Act (“the Act”) in connection with the generation and dissemination of the so-called “Steele Dossier.” The Foundation alleges that the Commission has failed to act on its administrative complaint.

The Act permits parties aggrieved by a failure of the Commission to act on an administrative complaint during the 120-day period after its filing to file a petition with the Court. The Foundation asks the court to declare that the FEC’s failure to act on its administrative complaint is arbitrary, capricious, contrary to law, or an abuse of discretion and to compel the Commission to take action on its complaint.

On August 15, 2019, the Coolidge Reagan Foundation filed a Notice of Dismissal without Prejudice.
