Michigan Appeals Primary Ruling
(2007-11-13)
(wgvu) -
LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The state of Michigan has appealed a
judge's decision that part of a law establishing a January 15
presidential primary in Michigan is unconstitutional.
The state attorney general's office wants a decision from the
Michigan Court of Appeals by Friday. Supporters of a primary say
time is of the essence.
The appeal seeks to put on hold a court order blocking the
primary from being held while state attorneys argue that the law is
constitutional.
Supporters of an early primary say it would give Michigan a
bigger role in selecting presidential candidates.
Ingham County Circuit Court Judge William Collette last week
ruled part of the law is unconstitutional.
Individuals who brought the suit are opposed to a provision of
the law that gives the state Democratic and Republican parties
exclusive access to lists of who voted in their respective
primaries.
