The legal theory being pursued by the plaintiffs is that, by announcing on August 12th his inability to effectively govern, Jim McGreevey essentially created a vacancy as of that date, and that by remaining in office through November 15th, he is preventing a special election and thereby depriving New Jersey citizens of their constitutional rights, including the right of due process.
If that sounds like a winning argument to you, go read the whole post and see why it probably won't succeed.
Kudos for trying, though. There certainly have been less meritorious lawsuits filed in the history of New Jersey politics.
