MS – Orly v Democrat Party – Support of Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings

Plaintiffs’ citation to a century-old secondary source has no application here for other reasons as well. First, the misquoted excerpt addresses only disputes arising out of political party nominating conventions and internal party rules. Second, the excerpt merely summarizesthe law, as it existed in 1905, in states other than Mississippi. In contrast, this case involvesMississippi’s 2012 general presidential election. In short, Plaintiffs’ 1905 Cyclopedia referenceis not only a misleading representation of the law, but it is also utterly irrelevant to this case.
