U.S. Supreme Court shuts door on two Arizona cases, rejects libertarian party and Tempe’s ‘squatter(?)’

Steve Sussex, “The Tempe Squatter”

The U.S. Supreme Court shut the legal door on two long-running Arizona cases Monday, when it refused to hear appeals from Tempe’s (original) squatter(?) and the Arizona Libertarian Party.

The Libertarians have been fighting a law passed in 2015 by the Republican-controlled Legislature (signed by a Republican Governor) that has effectively wiped out Libertarians from appearing on general election ballots. The amendments – following several close Congressional races that featured Libertarian candidates possibly impacting the outcome – changed signature requirements for the Libertarian candidates. (It factored in unaffiliated voters in the calculations. Although it also changed the formula for Democratic and Republican signature requirements, only Libertarian candidates saw a significant increase in the minimum number of signatures required.)
