Federal Judge to Decide on Ohio Voting Machines at Noon

A federal judge said he’d issue a decision by about noon Tuesday in a lawsuit seeking an immediate halt on the equipment used in about 25 Ohio counties because of the threat of viruses or human manipulation which it’s been claimed could flip the outcome of the presidential election.

U.S. District Court Judge Greg Frost heard more than an hour of oral arguments in the lawsuit brought by a Columbus State Community College political science professor voter who claims that the contract that Secretary of State Jon Husted entered into with Omaha, Neb.-based Election Systems could allow changes on the voting machine results from non-election board officials.
