About this Case
In November 2008, the RNC filed a challenge to the federal limits on coordinated spending between political parties and their candidates for federal office. In September 2010, the en banc Fifth Circuit rejected all of plaintiffs’ claims, and upheld the party coordinated spending limits. On March 21, 2011, the Supreme Court denied certiorari, allowing the Fifth Circuit decision affirming the coordinated spending limits to stand.
