Sturman: You are asking, as a preliminary matter to throw out 1,400,000 votes on the chance that somewhere around 258 people voted who should not have
Sturman says she's "really struggling" with idea of throwing out the election, says doing so would cause "very serious harm to public, disenfranchising the 1.4 million people who did vote....and the public interest is keeping people in office.
Sturman says she does not see herself granting a preliminary injunction based on the record.

"The civil remedy of throwing out an election is just a shocking ask."
Sturman officially denies motion to strike AB4 down as unconstitutional, officially denies preliminary injunction request. Says vote dilution concept is insufficient & no likelihood of success on merits
Sturman: As a matter of public policy, this is just a bad idea because the public does not have an interest in having every member, every person who ran for election three weeks ago run again
That's it for the hearing - to be clear, case not dismissed yet, fyi
For those asking what's next, there's a pending motion for summary judgement that the state opted not to contest today. So expect that to come up in a hearing sometime next week

An FYI - this hearing, which was scheduled to start at 10 a.m., appears to be going on, but the court has somehow muted itself on the video conferencing system so I have no idea what's being said. Lots of hand gestures from judge + attorney for Marchant fwiw
Craig Mueller (attorney for @VoteJimMarchant) is asked by Judge Sturman how new election process would work & how voters in other counties would work if only Clark County re-votes

"It is not my desire to disenfranchise anybody"

NEW: Judge Joe Hardy Jr. rules that polling sites that were not open by in Clark County due to technical difficulties can remain open until 8 p.m. this evening.

HARDY: The right to vote is obviously extremely extremely important and if the courts going to err on the side of anything, as, as all parties candidly recognize here, best to err on the side of allowing the full fair opportunity for everyone to cast their votes.
IMPORTANT: Hardy says anyone in line at the listed locations by 8 p.m. can still cast a ballot
