The order of 1/16/08 states:
1) This Court agrees fully with the United States and finds that the defendants have failed substantially to comply with the voting systems requirements of this Court's Remedial Order and that New York remains in noncompliance with the voting systems requirements of Section 301 of HAVA, 42 U.S.C. 15481;

2) As this Court made clear at the December 20, 2007 hearing, noncompliance with HAVA is not an option for defendants and, to the extent that State law and procedure stands in conflict with full compliance with HAVA's federal law mandates, such State law and procedure must give way to federal law requirements;...

So, yeah, I'm suggesting that the court order to replace levers is based on Sharpe's opinion of HAVA. I can stipulate that you believe your counterarguments, but I can't pretend that I do. Maybe you should try to change the sub-- oh, I see you already thought of that.
