CASE ENTRY

Citizens for Responsibility & Ethics v. FEC

Under decades-old Federal Election Commission regulations, nonprofits that run political ads need disclose the identities only of donors who earmarked their donations for those specific ads. Uh oh! A federal district court holds that this is a plain misreading of the law, which requires all contributors be disclosed. D.C. Circuit: And that is probably right, so we will not grant a stay pending appeal. (NB: Neither will the Supreme Court.)
