(MN-Sen) Franken wins absentee ballot suit

Just picked this up on HuffPo:
A Minnesota judge has granted a request by Democratic Senate candidate Al Franken for the release of information on voters whose absentee ballots were rejected.
While this applies only to Ramsey County (home of St. Paul, the capitol), it's the second largest county, and a symbolic victory after the Sec. of State refused to count the rejected ballots until the court told them otherwise (dammit Mark Ritchie, you're supposed to be a corrupt partisan Democrat, throw me a bone here :P )
Considering that there's only 215 votes between the two major players in this election and the slight statistically larger chance that rejected ballots are Democratic, this could be big news... especially if it causes a release of other rejected absentees across the state.
Sorry this is a short diary, but I wanted to talk about something besides how Chicken Little feels like Obama knocked over the sky today.
