U.S. Supreme Court Remands James v FEC Back to U.S. District Court

On April 7, the U.S. Supreme Court remanded James v Federal Election Commission, 12-683, back to the U.S. District Court and told that lower court to re-do its opinion, in light of the U.S. Supreme Court McCutcheon opinion. James v FEC is a challenge to the amount of money that an individual can donate to all candidates for federal office. Virginia James was willing to accept the total ceiling on all contributions that an individual can make to federal candidates, political parties, and PAC’s put together, but she wanted to distribute the contributions so that her total contributions to all candidates exceeded the limit for all candidates combined.

It is obvious that she will win her case, given the more far-reaching decision last week in McCutcheon v FEC.
