High Court declines to hear Nader's case
By Associated Press
Monday, January 10, 2005

WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court declined on Monday to consider whether Pennsylvania officials were wrong to keep Ralph Nader off the presidential ballot last November.

At issue was whether more than 6,000 signatures on Nader's nomination papers were improperly deemed as invalid, leaving him short of the number required to be listed as an independent candidate.

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court on Oct. 19 upheld a lower ruling that said the signatures were invalid because they did not come from registered voters.

Nader's appeal, filed in late October, had asked that the Supreme Court determine in his case and future elections that signatures from eligible voters, even if not registered, should be considered valid.
