Changes on Florida Ballot

After a six-hour hearing, Leon County Circuit Judge Kevin Davey issued a temporary injunction Wednesday. It keeps keeping Secretary of State Glenda Hood from notifying elections supervisors that Nader's name will be on the ballot.

It's until the judge can determine whether the Reform Party followed Florida election law to get him on it.

The Florida Democratic Party is suing to keep Nader off the ballot, saying the Reform Party isn't a viable party and that it didn't actually nominate him during a convention held late last month. The party held a conference call earlier this year to nominate Nader.

Davey will determine soon whether Nader should be on the ballot, but said he wanted to give Nader a chance to hire a lawyer to respond to the lawsuit. A second hearing is scheduled for Thursday.
