Ballots to be printed without Lewis’ name

    Things still aren’t going Carl Lewis’ way. The state supreme court decided today ballots can be printed without the Olympian’s name, despite several appears from Lewis to be allowed to run for the New Jersey Senate.

    Ballot printing was delayed as the court decided whether Lewis should be allowed on, but today’s ruling is one in a series keeping Lewis from running.

    But Lewis and his attorney are trudging forward. A federal appeals court must decide if ballots should go out with Lewis’ name on the 8th District spot while his residency challenge is appealed. On the state level, the Supreme Court must decide if Lewis’ appeal is worth of a case.
