U.S. District Court in Ohio Sets Status Conference for December 4 on Whether New Law Can be Enforced for 2014

A U.S. District Court in Columbus, Ohio, will hold a status conference on December 4, Wednesday, in Libertarian Party of Ohio v Husted. This is the case on whether the new petition requirements passed by the legislature on November 6 can be used for the 2014 election. The party argues that due process does not permit addition of new, severe ballot access hurdles so late in the election season. The status conference will set deadlines for the briefs on each side, and it is likely that the deadlines will all be in December, so that the issue can be settled quickly.
