  •  Peemptive Injuction? (2+ / 0-)

    Wonder what the likelihood is of Camp Coleman finding a court that would issue an injunction that would prevent Ritchie from certifying a winner until the duplicate ballot issue is resolved?

    •  Kind of unlikely I think (7+ / 0-)

      Team Norm heard the MN Atty. Gen. Swanson issue an opinion the Canvassing Board did not have jurisdiction on the dup. ballot issue.

      Team Norm took that to the MN Supreme Ct. and were TOLD 5-0 (and thats telling!) that the only court with jurisdiction is an "election contest" court of 3 judges appointed AFTER a winner in a race is certified. (All spelled out in MN law.)

      So I don't think Team Norm can go anywhere in MN to get a judge to rule against black-letter law and a still glowing 5-0 Supreme Ct. decision.

      If they want to file suit its AFTER a winner is ceritfied.

    •  That was already decided by the Supreme Court (1+ / 0-)

      No lower court will issue an injunction that the Supreme Court turned down unanimously.
