A lawsuit challenging NJ’s uniquely abysmal, toady-rewarding ballot system moves forward

June 8, 2022

There is a federal lawsuit filed by Pugach and a group of former candidates and advocacy groups that challenge the primary ballot system as unconstitutional, which received a de-facto vote of confidence from a federal judge on May 31, when the court ruled a motion to dismiss the case was denied.

“Realistically the lawsuit is probably … the quickest way that this is likely to change, even though that’s probably going to take years, but just because it is decisive,” Julia Sass Rubin, associate professor at Rutgers’ Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, told the Eagleton panel.
