Level the Playing Field Files Brief in U.S. District Court in Debates Case

Ballot Access News

On August 8, Level the Playing Field filed this brief in Level the Playing Field v Federal Election Commission, 1:15cv-1397. This is the case that argues that the FEC has improperly and unlawfully permitted the Commission on Presidential Debates to limit the general election presidential debates to the Democratic and Republican nominees.

Next, U.S. District Court Judge Tanya Chutkan will rule on the FEC’s motion to dismiss the case. If she denies the FEC’s motion, additional evidence, discovery, and a trial will follow.

Meanwhile, in the other debates lawsuit, Johnson v Commission on Presidential Debates, the D.C. Circuit heard oral argument in April 2017 and the opinion is not out yet.
