Court Reinstates Oct. 7 Calif. Recall Vote

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously rules that California's gubernatorial recall election should take place on Oct. 7 as originally scheduled. The decision overturns a three-judge panel's earlier ruling to postpone the recall on concerns that the use of punch-card ballots in some counties would disenfranchise voters.
