The Sixth US Circuit Court of Appeals has refused to issue an emergency injunction blocking a lower court's order removing Nader from Ohio's ballot, saying that Nader could not demonstrate a likelihood of success on the merits of the case.

The Sixth Circuit also denied Nader's request for an expedited appeal. AP has more. JURIST's Paper Chase has extended coverage of Nader's legal efforts to gain ballot access.
