Supreme Court denies Ohio Libertarians' ballot appeal

Supreme Court denies Libertarians' appeal to appear on Tuesday ballot | The Columbus Dispatch - Jack Torry:

May 5, 2014 - "The U.S. Supreme Court denied an appeal today from the Libertarian Party of Ohio, ending the party’s efforts to field candidates for governor and attorney general on Tuesday’s primary ballot.

"Mark Brown, the Capital University law professor representing the Libertarians, said that before the end of the week he will ask the entire 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati for a rehearing as part of an effort to gain spots on the November ballot of gubernatorial candidate Charlie Earl and attorney general candidate Steven Linnabary....

"He added that in 2008, the federal courts added Libertarian candidates to the November election even though they did not run in a primary.

"A three-judge panel of the 6th circuit last week unanimously upheld an earlier ruling by a federal judge that the candidacy petitions file by Earl and Linnabary were faulty. Secretary of State Jon Husted made the original decision to remove them from the statewide ballot. "
