United States District Court, S. Complaint challenged certain Alabama statutes including the "Prayer Law.
Argued April 22, —Decided June 26, Federal-law limits on the amount of contributions a House of Representatives candidate and his authorized committee may receive from an individual, and the amount his party may devote to coordinated campaign expenditures, 2 U. The District Court concluded sU.
The standing inquiry focuses on whether the party invoking jurisdiction had the requisite stake in the outcome when the suit was filed, see, e.
Section a would shortly burden his personal expenditure by allowing his opponent to receive contributions on more favorable Comm 554, and there was no indication that his opponent would forgo that opportunity. Wisconsin Right to Life, Inc. WRTLU. Sections a and b violate the First Amendment.
This Court has never upheld the constitutionality of a law that imposes different contribution limits for candidates competing against each other, and it agrees with Davis that this scheme impermissibly burdens his First Amendment right to spend his own money for campaign speech.
Buckley is instructive here. The resulting drag on First Amendment rights is not constitutional simply because it attaches as a consequence of a statutorily imposed choice. The burden is not justified by any governmental interest in eliminating corruption or the perception of corruption, see id.
In this appeal, we consider the constitutionality of federal election law provisions that, under certain circumstances, impose different campaign contribution limits on candidates competing for the same congressional seat.
A candidate also may not accept general election coordinated expenditures by national or state political party committees that exceed an imposed limit. A candidate who does not spend the contributions received under the asymmetrical limits must return them. Section b thus requires self-financing candidates to make three types of disclosures.
A candidate who does not intend to cross this threshold may simply declare an intent to spend no personal funds. The initial and additional notifications must provide the date and amount of each expenditure from personal funds, and all notifications must be filed with the Federal Election Commission FECall other candidates for the seat, and the national parties of all those candidates.
Failure to comply with the reporting requirements may result in civil and criminal penalties.
In addition, when the additional contributions that a non-self-financing candidate is authorized to receive pursuant to the asymmetrical limitations scheme equals the OPFA, the non-self-financing candidate must notify the FEC and the appropriate national and state committees within 24 hours.
For their part, political parties must notify the FEC and the candidate they support within 24 hours of making any expenditures that exceed the normal limit for coordinated party expenditures. In both elections, he lost to the incumbent.
Brief for Appellant 4. His opponent in spent no personal funds. The FEC proposed a conciliation agreement under which Davis would pay a substantial civil penalty. Davis responded by agreeing to toll the limitations period for an FEC enforcement action until resolution of this suit.
Davis filed this action in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, and a three-judge panel was convened.
While Davis requested that the case be decided before the general election campaign began on September 12,the FEC opposed the request, asserting the need for extensive discovery, and the request was denied.
Ultimately, the parties filed cross-motions for summary judgment. The Court concluded that Davis had standing, but rejected his claims on the merits and granted summary judgment for the FEC.Syllabus.
