Libertarian Party Hoping to Recover $214K

Spent the money in Pennsylvania fighting Republican attempt to keep the party off the ballot


HARRISBURG, Pa.—The Libertarian Party is seeking to recoup nearly $214,000 in legal costs from its successful defense against a Republican Party-backed challenge to keep the Libertarian ticket off the Pennsylvania ballot.

Paul Rossi, the lead lawyer for the Libertarians, said in a motion filed Monday in Commonwealth Court that the challengers violated a court order by intentionally misleading his clients in an effort to pressure them into giving up.
