Mr. Jacob talked about the history and issues of the case, U.S. Term Limits v.Thornton, which involves the entire Arkansas congressional delegation. In 1992, Arkansas voters passed a ballot entry referendum which limits congresspersons to 3 House terms and 2 Senate terms. After these limits the incumbent’s name could no longer be printed on the ballot, but could still be a write in vote. He also talked more broadly about other efforts to enact such limitations across the nation. The case will be argued before the Court on November 29th. close
