Briefing Schedule Set in Nader Lawsuit Against Democratic National Committee for 2004 Behavior
February 16th, 2011
The Maine Supreme Court has set a briefing schedule in Nader v Maine Democratic Party, et al, case no. washington-county-10-678. This is the tort lawsuit filed in 2009 in which Nader argues that the Democratic National Committee and its allies, in 2004, filed meritless challenges to his ballot access petitions, and engaged in dirty tricks against his circulators. Nader’s brief is due on April 8; the response is due May 27; and the rebuttal is due June 10. The central issue now is whether the lower court should have conducted a trial.
