The federal district court in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday issued an injunction barring the Federal Election Commission from enforcing contribution limits against SpeechNow.org and its donors.
The injunction, opposed by the FEC, reinforces a March 26 ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit in SpeechNow.org v. Federal Election Commission. The en banc court unanimously struck down a ceiling on contributions to independent political groups that want to spend money directly to support or oppose candidates in federal elections.
