Libertarian Party v. Dardenne, 09-30307

In an action seeking to declare unconstitutional the Louisiana Secretary of State's deadline for submitting qualifying papers entitling candidates to be on the ballot for the 2008 presidential election, dismissal of the complaint as moot is affirmed where plaintiffs failed to show a reasonable expectation that the Secretary would again unilaterally change filing deadlines in the future.
