The new lawsuit is Gelineau v Ruth Johnson, and is filed in U.S. District Court in the western district of Michigan. The new lawsuit includes the Michigan Libertarian Party, and some of its presidential elector candidates, and also Gary E. Johnson of Austin, Texas. Here is the 14-page brief, plus the accompanying exhibits, including a declaration by Gary E. Johnson of Texas.
