Sarvis v. Alcorn, 15-1162

In a political figure in the Libertarian Party of Virginia's constitutional challenge to Virginia's three-tiered ballot ordering law, the District Court's dismissal for failure to state a claim under Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(b)(6) is affirmed where: 1) the three-tiered ballot ordering law imposes little burden on plaintiff's constitutional rights; and 2) Virginia articulates several important interests supporting the law.
