(Harrisburg) -- The Libertarian Party is seeking to recoup nearly $214,000 in legal costs from its successful defense against a Republican Party-backed ballot challenge.
The lead lawyer for the Libertarians, Paul Rossi, says in a motion that the challengers violated a court order by intentionally misleading his clients in an effort to pressure them into giving up.
But in October, after a review that lasted more than seven weeks, Senior Judge James Gardner Colins ruled that the Libertarian candidates for president, U.S. Senate and the three statewide "row offices" had enough valid signatures to stay on the ballot.
State Republican Party director Mike Barley says the Libertarians' claims are baseless. He says the GOP side acted in good faith throughout the process.
