CHARLOTTE, North Carolina: A federal court has delayed a hearing on whether to grant ballot access to an independent candidate for U.S. Congress in North Carolina[1].

The hearing which was originally scheduled for July 28, 2010, was re-scheduled for August 12, 2010. The reason for the delay is the judge assigned to the case had to undergo a medical procedure on the same day the hearing was scheduled[1].

The plaintiff in the Greene v. Bartlett case challenges the constitutionality of the state's signature requirements towards independent candidates running for U.S. Congress. North Carolina requires independent congressional candidates to get signatures from four percent of registered voters in a congressional district[1].
