The document, a first draft from the general counsel’s office, would be closely analyzed by political attorneys for insights into the commission’s thinking in cases of nonprofits. It could also serve as a road map for campaigns to avoid FEC enforcement.

“The FEC ignored the law and its own policies and regulations that require publication of the document,” said David Keating, president of the group, in a statement.The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.
