On November 14, James Hall, the only independent candidate who filed a petition to be on the December 17, 2013 ballot for U.S. House in Alabama’s First District, asked the 11th circuit to hear his appeal. On November 13, a U.S. District Court in Alabama had denied him any relief. The case is Hall v Bennett.
UPDATE: here is a newspaper story about the court hearing. It was written before Hall decided to appeal.
