Election Lawsuit Dismissed By Court

August 27, 2014, 12:19 PM by Brandon Van Westen

Election Lawsuit Dismissed By Court
PIERRE, SD -

A lawsuit filed against South Dakota's Attorney General by a Watertown man was dismissed today.

Charles W. Haan, of Watertown, filed a lawsuit against the Attorney General to certify Haan as a candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives, or to compel the Attorney General to order Secretary of State Jason Gant to certify Haan as a candidate.

A circuit court judge dismissed the lawsuit citing "that there is no law, and no arguable extension of the law, which would under any theory, authorize a circuit court to order the A.G. to order the Sec. of State to do anything."

In 2013, Haan filed a lawsuit against U.S. Rep. Kristi Noem. In court documents, he claimed that Rep. Noem breached the oath of office by not "ending federal funding of Planned Parenthood," among other charges.
