Ralph Nader and Center for Competitive Democracy File Amicus in California Lawsuit over Attorneys Fees in Top-Two Primary Lawsuit

On September 17, Ralph Nader and the Center for Competitive Democracy filed this amicus brief, in Field v Bowen. The issue is whether the six plaintiffs who challenged certain parts of California’s top-two open primary law should be required to pay almost $250,000 in attorneys fees to supporters of the top-two system who had intervened in the case.

    Ralph Nader cites the “unprecedented misapplication of the law” with the fees and of course underscores the validity of challenging the top two scheme because it “forcloses participation in general election for all but major party candidates”

    Nader and the Center for Competitive Democracy are the best friends America has.
