Alabama: suit seeking disqualification of 4 senators to be moved to Montgomery

AP reports: A lawsuit seeking to remove four powerful Democratic senators from the general election ballot must be moved from Autauga County to Montgomery County, a Republican judge ruled Wednesday.

Autauga County Circuit Judge Ben Fuller said the suit must be heard in the capital because it is the location of the secretary of state, Alabama's chief election official and the main defendant in the suit.

The move may make it difficult for the suit to be heard before the election Nov. 7, but the issues could still be argued after the election, attorneys said. ...

The suit argues that the four senators should be removed from the ballot for not filing campaign finance reports during the primary election in June, when they had no opposition. -- Judge orders venue move of lawsuit to oust senators
