On November 22, Joe Miller, Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in Alaska, filed a lawsuit in state court, alleging problems with the state’s vote count in his race. He filed in state court after the federal judge in his federal case said the case belongs in state court.
The first procedural dispute is which state court should hear the case. Miller filed in Fairbanks, but the state wants it transferred to Juneau, where all the vote-counters reside and have been working. The second procedural dispute is how quickly the case should be heard. Incumbent Senator Lisa Murkowski filed a request to intervene in the lawsuit, and raised the issue that the case needs to be settled quickly. Then, on November 26, Miller filed a brief arguing that Murkowski should not be allowed to intervene in the lawsuit. See this story. The case is Miller v Lieutenant Governor, 4FA-10-03151.
