Thank you! I think this is the relevant part:

(4) Any challenge to the listing of any candidate on the presidential primary election ballot must be made in writing and filed with the district court in accordance with section 1-1-113(1) no later than five days after the filing deadline for candidates. Any such challenge must provide notice in a summary manner of an alleged impropriety that gives rise to the complaint. No later than five days after the challenge is filed, a hearing must be held at which time the district court shall hear the challenge and assess the validity of all alleged improprieties. The district court shall issue findings of fact and conclusions of law no later than forty-eight hours after the hearing. The party filing the challenge has the burden to sustain the challenge by a preponderance of the evidence. Any order entered by the district court may be reviewed in accordance with section 1-1-113(3).

TIL, in Missouri (and two other states) state law effectively (if not implicitly) prevents pregnant women from getting a divorce. Story here.

If a pregnant woman files for divorce in Missouri, it can’t be finalized until she’s given birth.

Missouri divorce lawyers put on their websites that potential clients should expect a minimum of 6 months for a contested divorce.

“H” sought out an attorney when she was 6 months pregnant. I empathize with H for being unable to finalize her divorce before she gave birth, but this law had nothing to do with it.

This is funny as hell...
Indiana appeals court uses Mike Pence’s religious liberty law to block abortion ban

I’ve no doubt Indiana’s supreme court will overturn this decision in a quick minute.

I’ve enjoyed the fake deathbed confessional tweets.

Some conspiracy-theory nut immolated himself yesterday outside the courthouse where Trump’s trial is starting. What the actual fuck?

Natural Selection in action. I didn't bother to read what he was protesting about.

If he survives, I doubt he'll ever try fire again. Awful way to go, and quite slow.

He died earlier today.

The only thing I’ve heard about what he was about was that he was deep into q-anon-type conspiracy theories.
