(Carson City, NV; May 24, 2011) – The Nevada Supreme Court today granted Secretary of State Ross Miller’s motion to expedite the Court’s resolution of his appeal of the May 19 1st Judicial District Court’s ruling regarding the special election to fill the vacancy in the U.S. House.

The court has ordered that the appellants’ opening brief shall be filed no later than 4 PM on Tuesday, May 31. The respondents’ answering brief shall be filed by 4 PM on Wednesday, June 8, and reply briefs, if any, must be filed by 4 PM on Monday, June 13.

The Supreme Court also directed Secretary Miller to provide it with an affidavit or declaration under oath specifying the actual time lines required for the preparation, printing, and circulation of ballots relating to the special election under both cases: whether the Supreme Court affirms the district court decision, or alternately, vacates the injunction and reinstates the Secretary of State’s prior interpretation.
