RNC (Cao) v. FEC: Petition for a writ of certiorari

Court Level
Supreme Court

Petitioners seek a writ of certiorari to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit to review its judgment herein. Petitioners argue that the petition should be granted so that the Court may answer the unresolved question and provide a test for determining when a coordinated political party expenditure constitutes the party’s "own speech," thereby reducing somewhat the disadvantage that political parties now face.
