Marc Ellinger successfully ensured that Jefferson County Collector Republican candidate, Shannon Roden, will be on the ballot for the August 2nd election. Roden’s opponent attempted to remove her from the ballot on paperwork issues. Ellinger successfully argued that Roden is in fact qualified for candidacy, and that her filings reflect that. Through trial and hearing in Jefferson County and the Missouri Eastern District Court of Appeals, Ellinger prevailed in getting the case dismissed and Roden on the ballot.
Marc Ellinger secured a win for the Secretary of State in the Missouri Court of Appeals, Western District. Ellinger represented Ashcroft in Fitzpatrick v. Ashcroft, a dispute arising over the ballot language for a measure passed by the General Assembly that would amend the Missouri Constitution regarding the investment of state funds. The Treasurer challenged the ballot title and fair ballot language prepared by the Secretary. The Court of Appeals affirmed the judgment of Cole County Circuit Court, finding that the ballot title was not unfair or insufficient.
