New Jersey Attorney General Belatedly Asks Court for More Time to Respond to Minor Party Lawsuit

The lawsuit filed on October 13, 2006 against certain New Jersey election laws has never received a response from attorneys for the state. Finally, on December 26, attorneys for the state asked the court for a 30 day extension to answer the complaint. The case challenges several aspects of New Jersey law that discriminate against parties that didn’t poll 10% of the vote for all legislative districts in the preceding election. It was filed by the Conservative, Green and Libertarian Parties of New Jersey.
