This is a nice, concise summary. The Contest Panel accepted the possibility that absentee ballot standards were enforced differently across the state. However, they basically said there was no remedy under the law. A non-activist Minnesota Supreme Court will likely agree with them.

Thanks for the summary

This is a nice, concise summary. The Contest Panel accepted the possibility that absentee ballot standards were enforced differently across the state. However, they basically said there was no remedy under the law. A non-activist Minnesota Supreme Court will likely agree with them.

===============================================

Coleman's only hope is that the MNSC throws out the Bell v. Gannaway precedent. According to it, it was Coleman's responsibility to challenge the counting of improperly cast absentee ballots before the security envelope was opened and the ballot was counted. He didn't do that.

Another part of Bell v. Gannaway prohibits the relaxation of state law in the validation of uncounted absentee ballots. They must be held to the highest standards under the law.

I don't see the MNSC overturning Bell v. Gannaway. It is a reasonsable precedent.

I can't see how this ends well for Coleman.

It's embarrassing for America to see this, but at least it show the public the true, ugly face of the GOP. It's less disheartening to see a pre-schooler throwing a tantrum than to see these actions from supposedly grown men and women. The sooner the Coleman case is thrown out the better for Minnesota, but maybe better for the national Democratic party to look so much more grown-up and patriotic compared to these sore-loser know-nothings.
