On September 5, a referee for the Oklahoma Supreme Court heard arguments in the lawsuit filed by the Americans Elect Party of Oklahoma against the State Board of Elections. The issue is whether the state should accept the nomination of Gary Johnson, made by the state party on July 21; or whether the state should follow the wishes of the national Americans Elect Party leaders, who don’t want any party nominations in any state.
The hearing lasted one hour and ten minutes, and the small hearing room was filled to capacity, so that some observers had to stand. The state will be given a chance to file a reply brief no later than September 11. Here is a short news story about the hearing.
