Court won't hear NH presidential ballot question

•  State Bar News     updated  2011/10/10 09:29


The Supreme Court won't hear an appeal from the Libertarian Party over whether New Hampshire officials should have let 2008 Libertarian candidate Bob Barr be the party's sole candidate on the presidential ballot.

The high court on Tuesday refused to hear an appeal from the party, which wanted Barr as the only candidate carrying its brand on the 2008 ballot.

A second candidate, George Phillies, also petitioned his way onto the New Hampshire ballot under the Libertarian banner. Barr and the party sued, saying Barr should have been the only Libertarian candidate on that ballot.

But the federal courts threw out the party's claim that Phillies' affiliation should have been removed because the national party didn't want his name on the ballot.
