The Nevada Supreme Court is preparing to review a lawsuit challenging a special election law before the July 6 deadline to get the candidates on the ballot. The court said Wednesday the full bench will hear from the state and the major political parties on June 28 in Carson City.
The court has been asked to decide whether the state’s first election to fill a vacant House seat will be open to all major party candidates or just candidates chosen by party leaders.
The court wants to delay the Sept. 13 election to give itself more time to review the untested election law.
But the state GOP has urged the court to make a decision soon.
The GOP filed the lawsuit because it wants to choose its candidate.
