WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - A federal judge is hoping court-ordered mediation can resolve a penalty dispute in a Federal Election Commission lawsuit against former Republican Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell.

The judge on Monday referred the case to a magistrate judge to explore alternative dispute resolution. He also ordered attorneys to submit written arguments on the amount of fines and penalties he should impose based on the current case record.

DOVER, Del. (AP) - Attorneys for the Federal Election Commission say former Republican Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell and her campaign committee have withdrawn a settlement offer under which they would pay a $10,000 penalty for violating campaign finance laws.

In a court filing last week, the FEC said O'Donnell's attorneys have instead submitted a new, final offer, and that the previously proposed terms are no longer on the table.

O'Donnell's attorneys also are requesting a jury trial to determine a remedy if there is no settlement.

DOVER, Del. (AP) - Former Republican Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell has opted not to disclose her personal finances in a Federal Election Commission lawsuit.

O'Donnell's attorneys filed a notice Tuesday waiving any argument that she would not be able to pay a penalty if she loses.

The judge ordered O'Donnell last month to disclose her income, assets and liabilities for 2014 and 2015, saying the information was relevant to her ability to disgorge funds or pay a civil penalty. But he also gave O'Donnell the option of waiving any argument regarding her inability to pay.
