Libertarian and Green Parties File Lawsuit Against Oklahoma's March 1 Petition Deadline for New Parties

Published on January 31, 2012, by in General.

On January 31, the Oklahoma Libertarian Party, and the Oklahoma Green Party, filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court against the Oklahoma petition deadline for newly-qualifying parties. The 2011 session of the legislature moved that deadline from May 1 to March 1. The case is called Libertarian Party of Oklahoma et al v Zeriax. The case number is civ12-119. The case was assigned to U.S. District Court Judge Timothy DeGiusti, a Bush Jr. appointee who has never before had a ballot access case. UPDATE: here is the Complaint.
