Objectivist conference

The Objectivist Summer Conference of 2016 is growing closer! Put on by the Ayn Rand Institute, this is a unique opportunity for students to gather together to explore Rand’s ideas and decide for themselves what they think about many different aspects of Objectivism. Thanks to generous scholarships, attending this conference will be at little to no cost for students.

July 11
Brooklyn, NY
Libertarian Party ballot access suit
11 am
 US District Court, EDNY
225 Cadman Plaza
Room 6B South

Judge Sterling Johnson, Jr. will hear our motion on July 11, and if the PI is granted then, we can start using modified petition sheets with a witness statement for non-duly qualified New York voters.

It would be helpful to the case if the gallery of the courtroom was packed with Merced and LPNY supporters at that hearing.  Monday, July 11, 2016, at 11:00 am, United States Court House for the Eastern District of New York, 225 Cadman Plaza East, Brooklyn, in Courtroom 6B South before District Judge Sterling Johnson, Jr.  See you there, spread the word!

Our lawsuit has been filed, to strike down New York Election Law 6-140(1)(b), which requires our nominating petition witnesses to be “duly qualified voters of the state” of New York, on the ground that it violates the Free Speech Clause of the First Amendment of the US Constitution.  Our federal court complaint, filed today in the US District Court for the Eastern District of New York, Brooklyn, is attached.

The hearing on our motion for a preliminary injunction, to enjoin the NYSBOE from enforcing that provision while the suit is pending, will likely be heard on July 1, so until then at least, we must comply with the current New York law.  I will meet with the judge tomorrow(Tuesday) morning to fix the dates for our motion.  Also attached is my Memo of Law in support of the PI.
