LNC Business List: Proposed Amicus Brief in LP Ohio Ballot Access Case

lpologoFrom the LNC Business List:

Dear All,

Pursuant to the Policy Manual, Section 2.04(2), I am advising the LNC
of a potential legal action.

Chris Wiest, our attorney in the KET lawsuit in Kentucky, intends to
file an amicus brief in support of the Libertarian Party of Ohio in
their ballot access case in the 6th Circuit. Counsel for the Ohio
party has been consulted and approves. Mr. Wiest is preparing this
brief pro bono on behalf of the Libertarian Party of Kentucky and
would not charge us to be included as a party to the amicus.

I have attached the District Court decision being appealed and the
statement of issues on appeal for those who may not be familiar with
the case.

The filing deadline is June 29 (7 days after LP Ohio’s deadline). I
intend to ask for Executive Committee approval at the next available
opportunity to join as an amicus in this suit.

Yours in liberty,
Nick

    I just read the opinion and wow… there certainly appears to be some dirty business there. In any event, it is really easy to see why there is resentment on the part of many Libertarians to the Republican Party.
