Christian Civic League of Maine v. FEC
In 2006, the Christian Civic League challenged the constitutionality of BCRA’s electioneering communications provision as applied to advertisement CCL alleged it wished to broadcast naming a candidate during the period before the election. A three-judge District Court for the District of Columbia dismissed the suit as moot. In 2007, the Supreme Court vacated the judgment and remanded the case to the district court “for further consideration in light of Federal Election Commission v. Wisconsin Right to Life, Inc.”
The CLC served as co-counsel to the defendant-intervenors.
