Nader 2000 Primary Committee, Inc. v. Cenarrusa (Mikel H. Williams, D. Idaho 1:00-cv-503)
The Ralph Nader campaign’s September 7, 2000, federal complaint alleged that Idaho wrongfully required more ballot qualification signatures for President than it required for other statewide races. At a September 14 hearing, the district court denied the campaign injunctive relief, finding the signature requirement to be reasonable and achievable.
