Case Number: 1:2020cv03325
Source: Justia Court Case Information
7. Each of the Plaintiffs herein is a Citizen of the United States over the age of eighteen years.
PLAINTIFF ANDREW YANG
8. Plaintiff Yang is a natural person who resides in New York County, New York.
9. Yang campaigned for more than two years to become President of the United
States and has worked as a businessman, a social activist, and commentator.
10. Yang is also a registered New York State Democratic Party voter.
11. Attached hereto as Exhibit A is a signed affidavit from Yang
Plaintiffs and Plaintiff-Intervenors are all registered New York State Democratic Party voters. Yang Aff. ¶ 2, ECF No. 20-1
78. Defendant has failed to protect the voting rights of Plaintiffs and all other similarly situated candidates and New York State voters.
91. Cancelling Plaintiff’s election, but allowing others to occur on the same day, it is clear Defendant’s action is fundamentally unfair and unjust and illegal. The nature of the interest at stake in this case, namely the right to vote and to have that vote count, is the most sacred liberty interest of all because it preserves all other basic civil, human, economic and political rights.
92. But the challenged law enabling the Defendants to act (NY’s State Budget Law) and the challenged decision of the Defendant’s on April 27, 2020 threaten to deprive Plaintiffs and all New York voters of this right.
