Hearing date set for Idaho ballot access lawsuit
The case challenges the ban on out-of-state circulators for independent presidential candidates. The case was filed on April 7, 2009. The lawsuit was filed by Donald N. Daien, a resident of Arizona, because he wanted to help Ralph Nader to appear on the Idaho ballot last year. He stated that he wanted to help other candidates appear on ballot in the future, giving him reason to file the lawsuit on January 16, 2009.
