Wisconsin Supreme Court to hear Nader suit on Thursday

WisPolitics.com reports: The Wisconsin Supreme Court said it will hear oral arguments Thursday on the decision to kick independent presidential candidate Ralph Nader off Wisconsin's ballot.

Nader was knocked off the Wisconsin ballot Tuesday when Dane County Circuit Judge Michael Nowakowski reversed a state Elections Board ruling from last week.

In reaction, Nader attorney Robert Bernhoft filed an emergency petition with the state Supreme Court for the board to certify Nader and Peter Camejo as independent candidates for president and vice president, respectively. Democrats' response to that petition was due Wednesday at noon, but they received extra time to complete the filing.

Oral arguments before the Supreme Court are scheduled for 8 a.m. Thursday. The court also delayed the Elections Board's ballot certification pending notice from the court. -- Supreme Court to Hear Nader Arguments Thursday (WisPolitics.com)
