48. OH: Lawsuit over '04 Ohio election advances
A federal appeals court agreed today that a lawsuit challenging Ohio's voting system as unfair and marked by problems should be heard in court.

The League of Women Voters brought the action three years ago in the aftermath of the 2004 general election, which brought national criticism of Ohio elections officials while President Bush narrowly carried the state to clinch re-election. The organization wants a court order requiring the secretary of state and governor to put "a fair and competent system" in place.

A three-judge panel of the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati ruled unanimously that the lawsuit should continue in U.S. District Court in Toledo.
