Nader sues Michigan

AP reports: Ralph Nader's campaign has sued in federal court in an attempt to be placed on the Michigan ballot as the Reform Party's presidential candidate.

A suit was also filed in Illinois to gain ballot access there, the Nader campaign said.

The Nader campaign said the Michigan suit was filed late Tuesday in federal court in Detroit.

"Ralph Nader is the nominee of the Reform Party and he is entitled to appear on the Reform Party's ballot line in Michigan," Nader's attorney, Bruce Afran, said in a written statement. "Anything less is a violation of Nader's constitutional rights." -- Nader Files Suit to Gain Mich. Ballot Spot (AP via Newsday.com)
