Last week, Harry N. Young Jr. of Eagle River, Alaska filed a lawsuit against Lt. Gov. Kevin Meyer and the Alaska Division of Elections. Mr. Young filed this complaint alleging that the state violated the Alaska Constitution by allowing backers of a ballot initiative that seeks to change Alaska's electoral system to collect signatures prior to receiving approval from Lt. Gov. Meyer. Litigation Attorney Matt Singer is representing Mr. Young with the assistance of Associate Lee Baxter. Mr. Singer has argued cases involving ballot measures before and in this prior experience, gathering signatures before a verdict has never been allowed.
"The case was brought out of concern that the Division of Elections should follow the constitution and the law when it issues ballot initiatives, regardless of the subject matter of the initiative," said Mr. Singer. "If the state can just print initiatives willy-nilly, why have the process in the first place?"
