Connecticut Supreme Court Asks for Supplemental Briefs in Lawsuit on Which Party Should be Listed First on Ballot

On September 13, the Connecticut Supreme Court asked attorneys for both sides in Republican Party of Connecticut v Merrill for supplemental briefs. The justices want to hear from both sides on whether the Republican Party should have asked for administrative relief, before filing the lawsuit. The issue in the lawsuit is whether the Republican Party or the Democratic Party should be listed first on the ballot. It seems that the court is mulling over the idea of dismissing the lawsuit on procedural grounds.
