Alabama: Montiel appeals to Supreme Court

AP reports: An attorney trying to unseat four powerful Democratic state senators plans to appeal to the Alabama Supreme Court for permission to pursue his suit in Republican-leaning Autauga County.

Autauga County Circuit Judge Ben Fuller, a Republican, ruled Wednesday that Mark Montiel can't pursue his suit in the county, and he ordered it moved to Montgomery County, the seat of state government.

Montiel filed court papers Thursday asking the judge to put the move on hold while Montiel appeals to the Alabama Supreme Court. The suit seeks to disqualify Senate President Pro Tem Lowell Barron of Fyffe, Senate Majority Leader Zeb Little of Cullman, and Hank Sanders of Selma and Roger Bedford of Russellville. -- Attorney challenging senators to appeal ruling
