Considering they are still desperate for process servers in MOST states, there is ZERO chance that this gets filed in time to actually be STARTED before Tampa. Let alone ruled on. Not that it would matter anyway. IT is never going to win, nor would THAT matter anyway either since Ron Paul...who knows far more than everyone here put together...knows that he will have AT MOST 500 supporters with voting power.
Maybe they can't be bound...but that does not rule out penalties like being replaced.
Gee...you think MAYBE that is why Ron Paul has been VERY clear on what he EXPECTS his supporters to do if they are bound to Romney?
"The suit is seeking clarification from a federal court in California over whether delegates at the national convention can vote for any candidate of their choice, even if those delegates were won by Mr. Romney. The suit also alleges that the RNC violates federal law by requiring them to sign pledges to back a certain candidate, restricting delegates’ voting options and illegally limiting their vote, the National Journal reported."
Richard Gilbert, the attorney representing the plaintiffs, told CNN. “These are delegates to a national convention who are asking the judge for guidance whether to follow federal law or whether to follow state party rules or state bylaws. How can that be a frivolous case?
Never be afraid to ask simple questions.
They picked up the AP article - rather succinct! http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/paul-supporters-file-...

Nothing in the way of details, critical analyses, just plagiarism, copy and paste AP .
Did like Gilbert's response to Phillips in the last paragraph:
“When the RNC calls this frivolous, I think it’s very telling about how the RNC has no respect for the delegates at the convention,” Richard Gilbert, the attorney representing the plaintiffs, told CNN. “These are delegates to a national convention who are asking the judge for guidance whether to follow federal law or whether to follow state party rules or state bylaws. How can that be a frivolous case?
"If you want something you've never had before, you have to do something you've never done before." Debra Medina
That just shows how clueless (and not REALLY a lawyer) Gilbert is. First there is his mistaken notion that you can CHOOSE your judge. Then that you can fast track a case. And now he comes right out and claims that this lawsuit is just asking for GUIDANCE?
That is not what the court system is for.
Better set up a money bomb for this guy. Because he is going to be forced to pay the defendants; legal fees. And it won't be cheap.
