Circuit Rule 27-3(a)(3)(ii) Facts
The instant litigation asserts that immediately after Mr. Barack Obama is
nominated as the Democratic Party’s candidate for President, Defendant/Appellees
will send certifications containing false information to the Arizona Secretary of State. Once this action is taken the Arizona Secretary of State will be compelled totake certain ministerial actions as required by Arizona law. These actions willcause Plaintiff/Appellant Dummett, a Presidential candidate, irreparable harm
 because it will cause a competing candidate’s name, Mr. Obama’s, to be placed
upon Arizona ballots despite the fact that Mr. Obama does not meet the minimum
