AP: Ohio lawsuit dropped! Arnebeck will pursue "other avenues."

Lawsuit Over Ohio Voting Dropped



The Associated Press
Tuesday, January 11, 2005; 12:55 PM



COLUMBUS, Ohio - Three dozen voters challenging the presidential election results in the Ohio Supreme Court asked to drop their lawsuit Tuesday, saying it is moot with last week's certification of the electoral vote and the upcoming inauguration.


Citing fraud, lawyers representing 37 voters on Nov. 2 had asked the court to examine several problems with voting procedures in the hopes of overturning President Bush's victory in the state.


The election turned on Ohio's 20 electoral college votes, and not until preliminary results were available early on the morning of Nov. 3 did Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry concede.


Chief Justice Thomas Moyer of the state Supreme Court must still rule on the motion to dismiss the case, and is expected to go along with the request.


Without giving specifics, attorney Cliff Arnebeck said challenges of the results would continue in state or federal courts. But he conceded that there was nothing available now to try to prevent Bush's inauguration.


"We are not quitting. We are going on to any other forum that's available and we intend to pursue those avenues aggressively," Arnebeck said.

2. "Other avenues?"
Criminal prosecution, perhaps?

6. Well, that is disappointing.
I'm thinking he realized the Ohio Supreme Court was not even giving him a fair hearing -- didn't they even deny the right to preserve evidence?

Certainly, like Blackwell, they did everything to UNexpedite the case.

I hope Arnebeck can find other venues to carry something forward.

He is a smart guy -- send him some good energy.
