U.S. District Court in Arkansas Denies State’s Attempt to Dismiss Independent Candidate Ballot Access Case

On August 4, U.S. District Court Judge James M. Moody, Jr. denied the motion from Arkansas government attorneys to dismiss the case Moore v Martin, eastern district, 4:14cv-65. The issue is the March 3 petition deadline for non-presidential independent candidates. That deadline had been in May, until 2013, when the legislature moved it to March.

The state tried to get the case dismissed on the grounds that the plaintiffs have not shown the deadline injured them.
