Alabama: Judge splits cases attacking election of state senators

The Montgomery Advertiser reports: A Montgomery judge split two lawsuits challenging the election of five Democratic state senators, ruling Monday the cases involving campaign finance reports are too different.

Circuit Judge Charles Price sent the suit challenging the election of state Sen. Larry Means, D-Attalla, to Circuit Judge Gene Reese to hear. Price still will handle the suit challenging the election of Democratic Sens. Lowell Barron of Fyffe, Zeb Little of Cullman, Roger Bedford of Russellville and Hank Sanders of Selma.

The suit against Means was filed by his write-in opponent in the Nov. 7 election, Jack Lowe Jr. of Gadsden. -- montgomeryadvertiser.com :: Judge splits suits challenging election
