New Challenge to Federal Contribution Limits

A big new case filed Friday in D.C. federal district court: Plaintiffs in McCutcheon v. FEC, represented by Jim Bopp and Steve Hoersting, seek a preliminary injunction against:

a. the limits on contributions to non-candidate committees at 2 U.S.C. § 441a(a)(3)(B), as applied to contributions to national party committees and facially, and

b. the limit on contributions to candidate committees at 2 U.S.C. § 441a(a)(3)(A).

The moving papers may be found here.  Plaintiffs have requested a three-judge court per BCRA.

Update:  BNA has this report.
