On November 10, 2021, Joseph Hero filed this interesting brief in the Seventh Circuit in his lawsuit against the Lake County, Indiana Election Board. He is represented by the ACLU of Indiana. He was not permitted to file in the Republican primary for local partisan office in 2019 because the party had “banned” him from the Republican Party, because he had supported two independent candidates for local office.
Hero lost in the U.S. District Court because that Court said he lacks standing. In the Seventh Circuit, the case is Hero v Lake Co. Election Board, 21-2793. Hero’s brief, in its Appendix, has the U.S. District Court opinion.
