Michigan Primary Temporarily Derailed

The Associated Press:
"The law which pushed Michigan's presidential primary up to Jan. 15 was ruled unconstitutional by a court Wednesday, at least temporarily jeopardizing the state's plan to leap to the front of the 2008 nomination contests. Ingham County Circuit Court Judge William Collette ruled that part of the law passed by the state Legislature setting up the primary election is unconstitutional because it prevents public access to some information related to voting records in the primary. The ruling could be appealed. The Legislature also could go back and change the law in time for the primary to be held."
