Last week, we published reports that the New York State Board of Elections was served with the first lawsuit challenging the qualifications of Ted Cruz to appear on the presidential primary ballot. The justice who signed the order to show cause changed the venue from New York County to Albany County. Now, Albany State Supreme Court Justice David Weinstein will hear the challenge.
Reports indicate that the new judge has directed the State Board to answer the petition by 5:00 tomorrow. The Korman and Gallo petitioners must reply by Monday morning with oral argument next Tuesday morning.
The State Board has until tomorrow morning to indicate whether it objects to joining Ted Cruz as a respondent.
More details to follow as they become available.
