U.S. District Court Sets Hearing in Ohio Libertarian Primary Ballot Access Lawsuit

On March 10, U.S. District Court Judge Michael Watson scheduled a hearing in Libertarian Party of Ohio v Husted, for March 11, at 2 p.m. The hearing will consider the Libertarian Party’s new request, filed March 7, for injunctive relief putting the statewide Libertarian candidates back on the party’s primary ballot. The primary is May 6, so speed is essential. The state has not yet responded to the March 7 Libertarian filing, so it is likely the March 11 will set forth the rules by which the case is adjudicated.

Also on March 10, an attorney for the individual who challenged the Libertarian Party’s gubernatorial ticket filed a request that he be allowed to intervene in the case. UPDATE: see this news story.
