The Illinois Supreme Court has announced its oral argument calendar [pdf] for the upcoming September term, and it contains just one civil case. On September 22, 2010, the Court will hear argument in Hossfeld v. Illinois State Board of Elections, No. 109725.  Hossfeld involves the question of whether the appellant was a qualified primary voter for the Republican Party, such that his “Statement of Candidacy” in the February 2010 Republican primary for State Senator was valid, and he was therefore entitled to be on the ballot.  For more information on Hossfeld, click “Election Law” in the Illinois Supreme Court Updates.
