Eleventh Circuit Refuses Injunctive Relief to Independent Candidate in Special U.S. House Election

On December 12, the Eleventh Circuit refused to order Alabama to put James Hall on the ballot for the special U.S. House election, First District, that is being held December 17. The order is only a single sentence: “We affirm the District Court’s denial of appellants’ motion for a preliminary injunction on the grounds that the injury to the public from the issuance of an injunction would far outweigh any injury appellants might suffer.”

The order is signed by Judges Gerald Tjoflat, Charles R. Wilson, and R. Lanier Anderson.

    Eleventh Circuit has not been good with ballot access (and civil liberties in general) for last twenty years or so.
