Rosenberg Rules

Marion County Circuit Court Judge Lou Rosenberg overturned the decision of the Indiana Recount Commission not to hear the case of Charlie White's voter registration and remanded the case back to the Commission for action.

The Recount Commission includes the Secretary of State, incidentally. Charlie White will hopefully recuse himself from the case.

Any time a judicial decision maker(in this case the commission) refuses to give someone their day in court to present evidence, there is a good chance of reversal. I am seeing more and more judges refuse to hear cases because they have looked ahead to some perceived outcome before evidence is introduced. It happens all the time in federal court. It gets to be terrribly frustrating when they start weighing evidence that hasn't ever been introduced.
