Montana Green Party Intervention

August 19, 2020

Lawsuit filed by Green Party candidates and voters against the Montana Secretary of State seeking to be added to the ballot after the Green Party’s petition funded by the Montana Republican Party was found to be invalid. The Montana Democratic Party, DCCC and DSCC intervened in the case. After the district court denied plaintiffs’ motion for injunctive relief, they appealed to the Ninth Circuit. The Green Party candidates and voters voluntarily dismissed the appeal after the Ninth Circuit similarly rejected their motion for injunctive relief.
