SCOTUS applied to for Emergency Stay of Enforcement

CCD joins Emergency Application for a Stay of Enforcement, submitted to the United States Supreme Court on behalf of Herbert J. Hoffman, independent candidate for United States Senate in Maine’s 2008 general election. On July 28, 2008, the Supreme Judicial Court of Maine denied Hoffman listing on Maine’s ballot, even though all parties conceded that he had submitted a petition with enough valid signatures, because he could not prove that three particular signatures had been signed in his “presence,” according to the unspecified legal definition of that term.
