Ninth Circuit Stays Order that had Removed "None of These Candidataes" from Nevada Ballot

On September 4, the Ninth Circuit stayed the order of the U.S. District Court in Townley v Miller, 12-16881. This is the case in which the U.S. District Court had said “None of these candidates” should be removed from the ballot in Nevada. One of the three judges on the Ninth Circuit panel wrote separately to criticize the U.S. District Court Judge for issuing an order removing “None” from the ballot, yet delaying issuing a written order explaining the basis for his opinion. That delay made it procedurally difficult for Nevada to appeal. However, Nevada did successfully appeal.

The case is still not over, but it seems obvious that “None of these candidates” will survive further proceedings. Thanks to Rick Hasen for the link.

    Well, I’m going to fire off an indignant letter to any newspaper but one that’s published, I’ll tell your that right now!
