On July 13, the New York State Supreme Court, Appellate Division, ruled that Warren Redlich may proceed with a trial against his 2010 Republican opponent, Carl Paladino, and others. Redlich is suing for defamation. Here is the three-page opinion in Redlich v Stone, 4448 109005/11. Redlich was the Libertarian nominee for New York Governor. He polled 48,386 votes. If he had polled 50,000, the Libertarian Party would have become ballot-qualified in New York for the first and only time. Without the defamatory actions taken against Redlich just prior to election day, he might have polled 50,000 votes.
