Nader Case Against Democratic National Committee Loses on Statute of Limitations Grounds
June 9th, 2009
On June 9, the U.S. Court of Appeals, D.C. Circuit, ruled that Ralph Nader’s lawsuit against the Democratic National Committee for its work to keep him off the ballot in 2004 should have been filed earlier than October 2007. Here is the 19-page opinion. It concludes by saying, “Whatever the Democrats tried to conceal, Nader’s own complaint reveals his constructive knowledge of ’some evidence of wrongdoing’ by each current defendant more than three years before he filed his suit. Because Nader’s complaint is thus untimely on its face, we affirm on this limitations ground without addressing the district court’s decision or the ultimate merits of Nader’s theory of the case.”
