In 2022, the former board of the Libertarian Party of Idaho tried to re-take control over the party (in what they called a "rollback") after a new board was elected at the Idaho Convention 2022 which the former board claimed was illegitimate. An appeal was made to the Judicial Committee which was successful in restoring the elected Board and Jennifer Imhoff and Robert Imhoff were expelled from the Party.

On August 20, 2022, the LNC passed the following resolution:

Motion: Whereas, The Libertarian National Committee has found no convincing evidence that the regularly scheduled annual convention of the Libertarian Party of Idaho (LPID) which took place on April 2, 2022, was invalid; 

Whereas, The delegates at the April 2, 2022, LPID annual convention interpreted their own Bylaws and recognized the convention and its business as valid;

Whereas, LPID leadership elections were conducted at the April 2, 2022, LPID annual convention; and

Whereas, The LPID Judicial Committee determined that “The convention held on April 2, 2022, was a legitimate, valid, and effective Convention of the Libertarian Party of Idaho,” and that the officers and their successors, including Jayson Sorensen as the interim Chair, are the legitimate officers of the LPID;

Resolved, That the Libertarian National Committee recognizes the leadership elected at the April 2, 2022, LPID annual convention and their successors in the ordinary course of business as the legitimate representatives of the recognized Idaho affiliate, including interim Chair Jayson Sorensen.
