Challenge To SD Deadline For Petitions Heads Back To Federal Circuit
The Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals has resolved a legal challenge to South Dakota's restrictions on initiated and referred measures.
The appeals court heard arguments in December in the case short-titled South Dakota Voice v. Kristi Noem.
The Eighth Circuit has found that the 2019 law at the center of the appeal has been replaced and is moot.
But the constitutionality of petition deadlines is headed back to South Dakota federal court for resolution.
