Citizens to Save Cal. v. California Fair Political Practices Comm'n, C049642

Granting of preliminary injunction against defendant's regulation, which limited contributions to ballot measure committees controlled by candidates, is affirmed as the regulation conflicts with multiple provisions of the Political Reform Act of 1974 and thereby exceeds defendant's authority.
