[JURIST] The Federal Election Commission Tuesday sought a stay of a court ruling that struck down campaign-finance regulations that the FEC said were crucial in the month before the election. According to the FEC, confusion will result among candidates and campaigns if the current rules are not enforced until new rules can be drafted.
US District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly last month struck down more than a dozen FEC rules after several US Representatives brought suit alleging that FEC interpretations of the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002 had created loopholes in the Act. AP has more.
