Important Ballot Access Case from 1980 Ordering GA to Put John Anderson on the Ballot Now Available

The case is Anderson v Poythress, an unreported 14-page US District Court decision in 1980 that put John Anderson on the ballot on due process grounds.

Richard Winger of Ballot Access News tracked down a copy which I have posted here. It is not in Westlaw or any other database.

Richard reports that “the Fifth Circuit in 1981 did not reverse this decision; it just said the case is moot.  The Fifth Circuit opinion isn’t reported either, except for a table citation which says ‘vacated and remanded”‘ which is somewhat misleading.”
