Lawsuit Filed Against LAGOP
The Republican Party of Louisiana announced today that a lawsuit has been filed in U.S. District Court in California’s Central District by more than 100 Ron Paul supporters and self-proclaimed delegates to the Republican National Convention.
The suit, filed against the Republican National Committee and Chairman Reince Priebus and many state Republican parties across the country along with their respective chairmen, including Louisiana, alleges that the binding of national convention delegates is illegal under federal law and claims numerous violations of party rules.
The Republican National Committee has agreed to provide a joint defense for all parties listed in the suit. “We view the suit as completely frivolous but one to which a serious response must be made,” said RNC Chief Legal Counsel John R. Phillippe Jr..
“We have joined with the RNC to fight this ridiculous, frivolous lawsuit. This is just another feeble attempt by Paul supporters to undermine the rules and systems in place, and we are going to take this very seriously,” said LAGOP Executive Director Jason Doré.
