From Dan Tepfer, CT Post:
State Rep. Jack Hennessy’s challenge of the Democratic primary for the 127th House District, which resulted in a two-vote victory for Councilman Marcus Brown after two recounts, will be allowed to go forward, a judge ruled Tuesday.
Following a hearing, Superior Court Judge Barry Stevens denied a motion to dismiss the appeal brought by Deputy City Attorney John Bohannon.
Bohannon had argued that the specific appeal was filed beyond the 14-day state-mandated deadline.
While the judge said the question was a case of first impression, he nonetheless ruled that his interpretation of state statutes favored Hennessy’s appeal being heard.
