Last year, a U.S. District Court in Virginia struck down Virgina’s ban on out-of-state circulators. The state is appealing. On November 16, the Thomas Jefferson Center for the Protection of Free Expression filed this amicus curiae brief, on the side of the Libertarian Party. The Jefferson Center is 21 years old and is non-partisan; here is a description of the organization.
The amicus argues that the plaintiffs in the case, Libertarian Party of Virginia v Judd, do have standing. The state has been trying to persuade the 4th circuit that the plaintiffs don’t have standing.
