“Judge’s Order in Van Hollen Case Could Put Disclosure Litigation Back on Track”

Bloomberg BNA: “A federal district judge who last year ordered the Federal Election Commission to increase disclosure requirements for political ads may get a chance to rule on the issue again, according to a March 12 court order (Van Hollen v. FEC, D.D.C., No. 11-766,3/12/13). The order by Judge Amy Berman Jackson of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia lifted a stay that had sidetracked a long-running disclosure case known as Van Hollen v. FEC. The order followed a March 11 filing by the FEC acknowledging that the agency will not act on its own to rewrite disclosure rules and recommending that the stay in the Van Hollen litigation be lifted.”
