Eleventh Circuit Judges for Georgia Ballot Access Case are Now Known — 10 Comments

  1. Trump appointees have ruled in favor of ballot access recently in Maine and Illinois.

  2. Were any of these judges involved in the case being remanded last time it went before the 11th circuit?

  3. No, those were three different judges: R. Lanier Anderson (Reagan appointee), Gerald Tjoflat (Ford appointee), and Adalberto Jordan (Obama appointee).

  4. Thank you, I am going to write these judges, just as I wrote Judge May, and make sure they hear from independents in Georgia.
