No Immediate TRO in Alaska Write-in Case; State Given Until Monday to Respond

See here. There's more on the counting from the NY Times. Tomorrow, while I'm flying to the Georgia state conference on Citizens United, my piece for Slate on Joe Miller's lawsuit on the write-in controversy should appear.
(UPDATE: The judge's order is here.)

FURTHER UPDATE: This WSJ artlcle, states that "Tim McKeever, a lawyer for Ms. Murkowski, said she plans to wait until 'we get the outcome' before deciding whether to file her own suit." Wouldn't the prudent thing to do be for Murkowski's lawyers to ask to intervene in the current suit?
