Naderites sue in New Mexico federal court

The Albuquerque Tribune reports: Three voters who want a chance to vote for Ralph Nader took their desires to federal court today.

Attorney Paul Kienzle, who is also representing Nader in an appeal before the New Mexico Supreme Court, said he filed the lawsuit in Albuquerque naming New Mexico Secretary of State Rebecca Vigil-Giron. ..

A hearing on the matter could come as early as Friday morning, Kienzle said. He said the case had been assigned to U.S. District Judge John Conway.

The case asks Vigil-Giron to preserve the estimated 25,000 ballots that have been printed with Nader's name on them and to send them to voters. -- Three sue over vote (Albuquerque Tribune Online)
