The Arnebeck mystery solved

Cliff Arnebeck was going to file a lawsuit contesting the Ohio presidential results. No really, he was. He was going to do it two weeks ago. Then he was going to do it on Monday of last week. Then Tuesday of last week. Then Thursday. Then Friday. Then today.

Why the holdup? Well, he's finally gotten around to doing it... six minutes too late. I gotta admit, the man knows what he's doing. Had he files his suit in a timely manner and it gotten laughed out of court due to an absence of evidence, that would have settled things for many people. But summarily dismissed for lack of timeliness, that's a different matter. Now the shriekers can shriek. Now they can complain of being railroaded. Arnebeck, being a lawyer, was surely aware of the importance of the deadline. But he can count on his lay followers being ignorant.

If anyone has a copy of the suit, I'd love to read it.

Thanks, Kevin. It appears that the rumor was wrong and the complaint was filed in a timely manner.

It makes for stultifyingly dull reading. The only part that even approaches the level of argument is that dealing with the exit polls, and even that argument has a number of fundamental flaws which I may address at some point. The rest of the complaint is simple allegation "on information and belief" without any supporting evidence or argument.

I know evidence is required in order to win a case but not so sure about when simply filing a case.
