U. S. Supreme Court Requests Mississippi Response

From Ballot Access News:

On March 19, the U. S. Supreme Court asked Mississippi to file a response to the certiorari petition filed by Brian Moore,[1] in the case over whether Mississippi should have put Moore on the ballot for President in 2008. The case is Moore v. Hosemann, 09-982.

This is the second indicator that the Court may be interested in this case. The first indicator was when Scotusblog flagged this case as a certiorari petition of interest. Scotusblog is a well-regarded news service that covers developments in the U. S. Supreme Court more closely than any other news source.

If the Court does take the case, it will be the first time since 1991 that the Court has taken a ballot access case filed with that Court by a minor party or independent candidate.


[1] Moore, a Florida resident, was the presidential nominee of the Socialist Party, which is not ballot-qualified in Mississippi. He was nominated here by the Natural Law Party.
