McConnell v. FEC: Democracy 21's excerpts of unsealed documents

Court Level
District Court

During the course of the lawsuit challenging the new campaign finance law, a number of documents were submitted in the case to the court under seal and not made available to the public.

In an opinion issued on May 2, 2003 by Judge Kollar-Kotelly, a member of the three-judge District Court panel that heard the case, the court took the position that the only information that would be made public from the documents under seal is information used in the opinions issued in the case.

Set forth is some of the information from these opinions that previously had been under court seal.
