U.S. Supreme Court: No conspiracy against Ohio Libertarian candidates

The U.S. Supreme Court today rejected an appeal from the Libertarian Party of Ohio which argued that Gov. John Kasich and Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted conspired to keep two of its candidates off the 2014 statewide ballot.

The justices, without comment, let stand a ruling from last July by the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals state officials did not violate the U.S. Constitution when they struck Libertarian gubernatorial candidate Charlie Earl and attorney-general candidate Steven Linnabary from the ballot.
