The idiot lawyer who keeps trying to get Cruz off the ballot in Illinois has lost again. A judge threw out his lawsuit because he didn’t properly serve his original complaint to Cruz and the election board:

REUTERS – An Illinois judge on Tuesday threw out a lawsuit that sought to have Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz removed from the state’s primary election ballot on a technicality, saying it had not been properly served on the Board of Elections.

Cook County Circuit Court Judge Maureen Ward Kirby in Chicago found that she did not have subject matter jurisdiction over the case because the plaintiff, Lawrence Joyce, did not properly file his petition for judicial review.

Joyce, a lawyer and a pharmacist from the distant Chicago suburb of Poplar Grove, initially filed a complaint in January with the state Board of Elections. When the board rejected the complaint, he filed the lawsuit seeking judicial review in Cook County.

Kirby ruled that Joyce should have served the complaint directly to Cruz and the members of the election board, not to their lawyers.

 
To this all I have to say is BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
