U.S. District Court Strikes Down Nebraska 10% Petition for Independent Candidates

On June 14, U.S. District Court Judge John M. Gerrard issued a two-page order in Bernbeck v Gale, 4:18cv-3073, saying the Nebraska 10% petition requirement for non-presidential independent candidates is unconstitutional. This is not surprising, because on June 13, the state had notified the court that it agrees that the law is unconstitutional. Here is order.
UPDATE: here is a news story.
