From Bev Harris and Andy Stephenson
http://www.blackboxvoting.org

On Tuesday at 9:45 a.m. at the Sacramento Superior Court (Dept. 53, on 800 9th St., Sacramento California) Plaintiffs Jim March, Bev Harris, Joseph Holder, Jim Hamilton, Douglas McDonald, and the Community Labor Alliance will seek a restraining order against Diebold Election Systems. Diebold attorneys have been sent a copy of this lawsuit, which seeks an order requiring the DIEBOLD defendants to disgorge and make restitution of any money or property acquired by means of their unlawful, unfair and fraudulent acts and practices.

The attorney representing Harris, March, et. al. is Lowell Finley, who recently won the $4 million campaign finance violation suit against Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Washington Secretary of State Sam Reed has also received a lawsuit, by Andy Stephenson on behalf of the People of the State of Washington, seeking decertification of the GEMS 1.18.18 system that was improperly certified and has now been used in two elections. In Washington state, contrary to state law, the firmware for the optical scan machines made by Diebold was never certified at all, and Stephenson's suit also seeks to require certification of all optical scan firmware before the next election.
