Ohio judge dismisses LP case, favoring camp of presidential hopeful Kasich

A judge dismissed the Libertarian Party of Ohio’s lawsuit against Governor Kasich and the Ohio Republican Party on February 29, saying that the court had no jurisdiction in the case.

Described in this news story as a legal case against Camp Kasich, filed by the Libertarian Party of Ohio [LPO] who saw its candidate for governor two years ago tossed off the primary ballot through a scheme that involved long-time political operatives spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to find a protester who could challenge signatures on party petitions.”

The LPO had appealed a decision by the Ohio Elections Commission regarding the removal of 2014 LPO gubernatorial candidate Charlie Earl from the ballot over issues with his petitions.

The Ohio LP can appeal the case to the 10th District Court of Appeals.
