Alabama: supreme court allows transfer of campaign finance case to Montgomery County

AP reports: The Alabama Supreme Court has refused to block the transfer from Autauga County to Montgomery County of a lawsuit challenging the election of four powerful Democratic senators.

The lawsuit claims the senators should be disqualified because they did not file campaign finance reports before the party primaries. The senators did not have opposition in the primaries, but the lawsuit claims they should have filed reports because they helped other Democratic candidates. ...

The ruling by the Supreme Court Thursday clears the way for Montgomery County Circuit Judge Charles Price to consider the lawsuit, which he has consolidated with a newer lawsuit filed against Sen. Larry Means, D-Gadsden. -- AP Wire | 12/01/2006 | Supreme Court refuses to block transfer of suit against senators
