As noted earlier, on May 17, the Constitution Party, the Green Party, and the Libertarian Party had filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Philadelphia against the unique Pennsylvania system that requires petitioning candidates and groups to be subject to as much as $100,000 in court costs, if their petitions are held to lack enough valid signatures. That case is Constitution Party of Pennsylvania v Aichele, 5:12-cv-2726.
The state has just asked for, and obtained, a 30-day extension to answer the complaint. The state’s answer is now due July 25.
