Ind. Decisions - Curley early voting oral argument tomorrow [Updated twice]

Note: This entry has been UPDATED and moved to the top of the list.

The oral argument in the case of John B. Curley, et al vs. Lake County Board of Elections and Registration, et al will be tomorrow, Thursday, Oct. 30th, before a Court of Appeals panel. (Oddly, the names of the panel members are not yet available - generally they are listed on the COA oral arguments calendar.)

The argument will be webcast and you may view it live at 1:30 PM EDT, or later, via this link.

The ILB so far has received a copy of only one brief - the "Motion of the State of Indiana to intervene for purposes of defending the validity of state statutes or, in the alternative, for leave to file a brief as amicus curiae in support of appellants." of the Attorney General, accompanied by the 27-page "Brief of the State of Indiana as interneor or amicus curiae."

Hopefully, someone out there can send the ILB copies to post of one or the other (or both) of the party's briefs, to add to this list of available documents:

Here is a current list of all the ILB entries on the Lake County early voting dispute.
