Quote of the Day

“The Court also notes, with grave misgivings, that [Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted]  changed an election rule on a Friday evening for an election scheduled for the following Tuesday, after repeatedly asserting, to both this Court and the Sixth Circuit, that he could not comply with injunctive relief ordered by this Court because he lacked sufficient time prior to the election. The surreptitious manner in which the Secretary went about implementing this last minute change to the election rules casts serious doubt on his protestations of good faith. Thus, in addition to the Plaintiffs’ successful legal arguments, the equitable doctrine of judicial estoppel is grounds for denying the relief sought by the Secretary and granting that sought by Plaintiffs.”

—Federal District Judge Algenon Marbley, in today’s provisional ballot ruling.
