From Ballot Access News:
On August 5, Julius Galacki asked the 9th circuit to let him intervene in the lawsuit called Chamness v. Bowen, which challenges two particular aspects of California’s top-two system. Galacki tried to file as a declared write-in candidate in last month’s run-off election for Congress in California’s 36th district, but his write-in declaration was rejected because California election law says that write-ins can’t be counted in the second round of Congressional elections.
The U.S. District Court then refused to let Galacki intervene, even though if he were allowed to intervene, he would be the only person in that lawsuit who has run, or attempted to run, for Congress as a write-in candidate. He is also the only person associated with the case who has declared an intent to run in 2012. Here is Galacki’s filing. Here is a very short procedural filing that was filed a few hours later.
