Stockman v. Williams (Lee Yeakel and Sam Sparks, W.D. Tex. 1:06-cv-742)
On September 19, 2006, an independent candidate for Congress filed a federal action to get his name on the ballot. The assigned judge was away that week, so another judge presided over a temporary restraining order hearing. Because absentee ballots would be issued in a few days’ time, and because the plaintiff did not name all necessary defendants, immediate relief was denied. The originally assigned judge determined the following week that the case was filed too late to obtain relief.

Myers v. Johnson (Linda V. Parker, E.D. Mich. 4:16-cv-13255)
Disappointed by their results in state court, signers of a ballot petition for an initiative challenged in federal court a state law deeming signatures over 180 days old presumptively invalid. The district judge concluded that the federal suit was precluded by the state court result and also filed too close to the election for non-disruptive relief.
Topics: Getting on the ballot; ballot measure; matters for state courts; laches.
