Carl Lewis Loses After All

Lewis v. Guadagno, 445 Fed. Appx. 599 (3d Cir. 2011).  Mere days after a panel of the Third Circuit voted 2-1 in favor of Carl Lewis’s bid to be on the ballot for the upcoming State Senate election, the same panel unanimously rejected his arguments and ruled that ballots could be printed without his name on them.  The opinion was per curiam and is not precedential.  Lewis made arguments involving equal protection, infringement of his fundamental right to travel, and impingement on the right to run for office without discrimination.  The panel found no merit in any of those contentions.
