Broward County FL election supervisor sued over registration list

[JURIST] AP is reporting that the Republican Party of Florida has sued to enjoin the Broward County Florida election supervisor to update the list of early voters in the heavily Democratic county. The list being given to local precincts had been updated as of Sunday, and the Republicans are concerned that people may have voted today (Monday) and show up again to vote on Tuesday. A circuit judge in Fort Lauderdale was hearing arguments this evening in the case, but it was unknown if there would be a ruling before the polls open Tuesday.
