I am on phone and limited in links. But the state Supreme Court today turned down Texas casino promoter Michael Wasserman's bid for more time to gather signatures for his casino amendment. The court upheld the secretary of stste's finding that initial filings were "facially" inadequate. More later.
UPDATE: Here's the majority opinion (two justices
dissented concurred in a separate opinion but said they disagreed that Wasserman's corporation had standing to petition the court).
The Supreme Court upheld the secretary of state's finding that the petition drive failed because it was required to meet facial requirements in two ways — total signatures and signatures in each of 15 counties. Wasserman failed on the county signatures, the secretary of state said, and the Supreme Court said no evidence was presented to the contrary.
Said Mike Linn who may have a bottle or two of alcohol in the refrig.
