CLC v. FEC (Delay Suit--Iowa Values): United State District Court for the District of Columbia - Response in Opposition to the Defendant's Motion to Dismiss

On April 20, 2021, Campaign Legal Center (CLC) explained why the defendant's motion to dismiss should be denied. Among other things, the defendant's arguments fail to identify any constitutional defect in the Federal Election Campaign Act's (FECA) long-standing private right of action to use administrative complainants to pursue civil enforcement of the law in certain, limited circumstances, which promotes the First Amendment right to access information about who is spending money to influence federal elections.
