Prediction: Perry ballot access lawsuit in Virginia will not result in favorable preliminary injunction

It is approximately 11:30 AM on Friday January 13, hopefully this prediction gets out before a ruling is made.

Although it appears that Judge Gibney believes that the petitioner residency requirement for signature gatherers in Virginia is unconstitutional (it is an open question in the 4th Circuit), I believe the preliminary injunction to get Perry, and the others on the ballot will be denied.

The main reason is that the relief requested is equitable, and Perry waited too long to bring the suit when he could have done so in the fall.

Prediction brought to you by your northern Virginia "non-domestic equity" practitioner.
