North Carolina Supreme Court Seems Eager to Hear Ballot Access Case
December 8th, 2009
The North Carolina Supreme Court will soon be hearing Libertarian Party of North Carolina v State Board of Elections, a challenge to the state’s ballot access laws for minor parties, and also a challenge to other laws that injure minor parties. The Green Party is a co-plaintiff.
The Court wants all amicus curiae briefs in by December 23, 2009. There are many groups that intend to file on the side of the minor parties, although they are wishing the Court would give them a little more time. For a list of the groups that want to participate, see this story by Brian Irving.
