Dave Indiano has litigated and argued various political election cases in federal court and at the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit. In 2012, he successfully argued two appeals related to the November, 2012 election; one involving a primary challenge to the then-sitting Governor and the other concerning the applicability of certain federal election laws to Puerto Rico. See González-Cancel v. Partido Nuevo Progresista, 696 F.3d 15 (1st Cir. 2012); Colón-Marrero v. Conty-Pérez, 703 F.3d 134 (1st Cir. 2012).
In 2004, Dave was one of a team of lawyers who litigated a challenge in federal court to the governor’s election that year based on federal constitutional theories and Bush v. Gore. The case is known as the “pivazos” case in Puerto Rico. In the late 1990’s, Dave was involved in a First Amendment case filed by a local newspaper against the sitting governor.
