Judge In June 9 Nevada Primary Fight Won't Rule Until July

RENO, Nev. (AP) — A federal judge has put off until next month any decisions about the legality of the temporary rules for next week's primary election in Nevada.

That means any further rulings on the constitutional nature of the mail-in format will not apply until the general election in November.

Judge Miranda Du granted a request Monday from lawyers for the conservative voting rights group to extend until July 3 the deadline to argue why she shouldn't dismiss their lawsuit.

Last week, the judge rejected a request from the Voters' Rights Initiative's to issue a preliminary injunction blocking the primary.
