United States Supreme Court
McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission, 12-536
In an action in which plaintiffs alleged that aggregate limits restricting how much money a donor may contribute in total to all candidates or committees contained in the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971 (FECA), as amended by the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002 (BCRA), were unconstitutional under the First Amendment, the district court's decision granting the government's motion to dismiss is reversed and remanded, where the aggregate limits are invalid under the First Amendment.
