RICHMOND, Virginia: On Monday, July 30, U.S. District Judge John Gibney struck down the Virginia law that allows petitions to be circulated only by state residents. The ruling was the result of a lawsuit brought by the Libertarian Party of Virginia arguing that the law infringes on the party's freedom of speech. An appeal has not yet been announced.[1]
