Nader on the Wisconsin ballot

AP reports: The state Supreme Court ordered Ralph Nader back on the Wisconsin ballot Thursday, ruling the longtime consumer activist had substantially met the requirements to go before the voters this fall as an independent presidential candidate.

The Democratic Party of Wisconsin sued to knock Nader off the ballot, arguing he had failed to meet minimal standards required under state law to qualify as an independent candidate.

But the court voted unanimously to overturn a circuit judge's decision handed down this week that temporarily knocked Nader off the ballot. -- Nader back on ballot in Wisconsin, court rules (AP via Duluth News Tribune)
