Kean for Congress v. FEC
Plaintiff Kean for Congress Committee brought suit against the FEC seeking judicial review of the agency’s dismissal of an administrative complaint. Kean Committee’s administrative complaint concerned political advertisements made against Thomas H. Kean, Jr., a candidate in 2000 for the New Jersey Seventh Congressional District. The trial court refused to grant the FEC’s motion to dismiss and the FEC’s motion for summary judgement. The case was eventually settled, and attorneys’ fees were awarded against the FEC.
