MONTGOMERY COUNTY v. MICROVOTE CORP., 01-2998 and 01-2999

The District Court did not err in denying plaintiff's motion for judgment as a matter of law on the ground that the statute of limitations bars this action because the doctrine of nullum tempus occurit regi ("time does not run against the king") applies where a county is compelled by law to hold elections and to procure electronic voting machines.
