Suit filed over name of candidate on ballot
Florida: Broward County Judge Mary Rudd Robinson has filed a lawsuit against opponent Jordan H. Jordan for listing his former name, Jordan H. Breslaw, on the 2010 ballot. According to Florida elections laws, a candidate must run under then name that they use to conduct official and private business, and Breslaw is registered with the Florida Bar, holds chiropractic and driver's licenses, authored a book as Jordan, and also lost a 2006 bid for judicial election all under the name Jordan H. Jordan, the name to which he legal changed in 1991. It is unknown why Jordan wishes to run under the name Breslaw, but he did say, "Jordan Howard Breslaw is my birth name, and I'm proud of it." Robinson has filed the suit asking Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes to disqualify Jordan because, the person, Jordan H. Breslaw listed on the ballot, does not exist.
