Ohio can wait

The Greens and Libertarians were suing to try to get the recount to begin before all the votes in Ohio had been certified. (Mostly due to the ticking clock from after that deadline of December 6 before the electoral college meets around December 13.) A judge has now ruled against any recount beginning until after the votes have been certified by Ohio. Can an entire state hold a recount within a week? (Though they do have until January when Congress opens the votes...) We'll see.
