Judge Orders Husted to Attend Hearing
In Obama for America v. Husted, federal District Judge Peter Economus set a hearing for September 13 on the plaintiffs' motion to enforce the court's order requiring certain early voting hours. The judge ordered Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted to attend the hearing. On Tuesday, Husted issued a directive to county boards of elections, requiring them not to set early voting hours until the case was resolved on appeal.
