Federal Judge Reportedly Declines to Stop Recount
A United States District Judge has declined to extend a temporary restraining order barring the Ohio recount from proceeding in Delaware County, according to this press release. As I noted yesterday, the TRO had been issued by state judge, but expired by its terms yesterday at noon. After the TRO issued, the Green and Libertarian candidates removed the case from state court to federal court. Today's press release doesn't explain the federal judge's reasoning, but does note that a hearing is set for tomorrow afternoon in Columbus, to consider the matter further.
