López-Rutol v. Gracia (Hector M. Laffitte, D.P.R. 3:03-cv-1880)
A would-be independent candidate for Puerto Rico’s senate filed a federal complaint challenging ballot petition requirements for candidates. The court denied the plaintiff immediate relief. On the one hand, the plaintiffs “waited for the eleventh hour to file the present petition for injunctive relief”; on the other hand, they “erroneously believe*d+ that a law imposing any burden upon the right to vote must be subject to strict scrutiny.”
Topics: Getting on the ballot; laches.

Diffenderfer v. Gómez-Colón (José Antonio Fusté, D.P.R. 3:08-cv-1918)
Three weeks before ballots needed to be printed for a 2008 election, a federal complaint objected to Puerto Rico’s ballots and their instructions being provided only in Spanish.

While an appeal was pending, Puerto Rico enacted legislation requiring bilingual ballots in future elections.
Topics: Ballot language; class action; attorney fees; case assignment.
