U.S. District Court Denies Relief for Montana Green Party

Ballot Access News

On August 19, U.S. District Court Judge Dana L. Christensen, an Obama appointee, refused to put the Montana Green Party back on the ballot. Davis v Stapleton, 6:20cv-62. The Green Party nominees who filed this lawsuit then filed an appeal to the Ninth Circuit.

Here is the 21-page order, which says on page 17-18 that if the Green Party were put back on the ballot, “the Democratic Party and its voters may see votes for Democratic candidates siphoned by seemingly progressive candidates who would not be on the ballot but for the efforts of the Montana GOP.”
