Ind. Decisions - "Lawsuit to clean up Indiana voter rolls can proceed"
INDIANAPOLIS — A conservative watchdog group's bid to force Indiana to clean up its voter registration rolls can proceed.Here is the 11-page, Dec. 10, 2012 ruling by federal Judge Lawrence in Judicial Watch v. J. Bradley King.
The state's motion to dismiss a lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch was rejected Monday by U.S. District Judge William Lawrence.
The Washington, D.C.-based group alleges 2010 general election data shows 12 mostly rural counties had more people registered to vote than were eligible. Those counties are Brown, Crawford, Franklin, Hancock, Newton, Orange, Scott, Spencer, Tipton, Warren, Warrick and Union.
The Election Law Blog heading for news of this ruling is "True the Vote NVRA Section 8 Claim Against Indiana Survives Motion to Dismiss," which says it all for the election law maven.
