MICHIGAN PRIMARY-LAWSUIT
(2008-03-27)
(wgvu) - A JUDGE HAS STRUCK DOWN A MICHIGAN LAW THAT GAVE
ONLY THE REPUBLICAN AND DEMOCRATIC PARTIES ACCESS TO VOTER
INFORMATION FROM THE STATE'S JANUARY PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARY.
YESTERDAY'S RULING BY FEDERAL DISTRICT JUDGE NANCY EDMUNDS IN
DETROIT DOES NOT AFFECT THE PRIMARY'S OUTCOME.
THE LAWSUIT WAS FILED BY THE AMERICAN CIVIL LIBERTIES UNION ON
BEHALF OF OTHER POLITICAL PARTIES, A WEEKLY NEWSPAPER AND A
POLITICAL CONSULTANT.
EDMUNDS SAYS SHE BELIEVES THE PLAINTIFFS' CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS
WERE VIOLATED. SHE AGREES WITH THEIR CLAIM THAT IT'S ILLEGAL TO LET
ONLY MICHIGAN'S TWO MAJOR POLITICAL PARTIES GET INFORMATION ON WHO
VOTED, AND WHETHER THEY TOOK A REPUBLICAN OR DEMOCRATIC BALLOT.
