Court Rules Against Fiala in Ballot Suit

By Fox 40 Staff.
A State Supreme Court Judge in Albany has ruled that Democratic State Senate candidate Barbara Fiala can not run on the Women's Equality Line on November's ballot...

The court ruled that the certificate nominating Fiala does not comply with election law. This because it lacked a sworn statement from anyone saying they were Women's Equality Party officers and that the statements in the Certificate of Nomination were true.

No response yet from the fiala campaign on the ruling. Broome County GOP Chairman bijoy datta, who was one of the people who brought the suit, said the ruling shows Fiala wasn't playing by the rules.
