NY Sued Over Out-Of-State Petitioner Ban

Thanks to Richard Winger of Ballot Access News for this post.

On April 18th, the New York Libertarian Party Sued to overcome the Ban on Out-of-State Circulators. Schmidt v Kosinski, e.d., 1:22cv-2210.

New York is the Only State that still Bans Out-of-State Petitioners for All types of Candidate Petitions.

The Case is assigned to U.S. Distrixt Court Judge Brian Cogan, a Bush Jr. Appointee.

The Party Won a Similar Lawsuit against New York in 2017.

The State Appealed. By the time the Appeals Court heard the Case, the Party had gained Qualified Status, so the Appeals Court said the Issue was Moot.

But the Legislature removed the Party's Ballot Status in 2020, so the Issue is ready to be fought again.
