Plaintiffs in Skaggs, hoping for remand, ask Ohio Supreme Court for TRO
Plainitffs in State of Ohio ex rel. Skaggs v. Brunner seek injunctive relief from the Ohio Supreme Court to prevent the opening of provisional ballot envelopes and co-mingling of ballots. Such removal of the ID envelopes and co-mingling would make the ballots irretrievable in the event of a subsequent court ruling that some of the ballots are ineligible for counting. The case has been removed to federal court but Plaintiffs are acting now in case Judge Marbley of the U.S. district court remands the case to state court at a 9 a.m. hearing tomorrow morning.
