Hearing at 9:30amCT in contested Mayoral election

In Adair Circuit Court

Attorneys Elmer J. George and Jonathan R. Spalding have entered a motion in Adair Circuit Court scheduled for 9:30amCT, this morning, Tuesday, June 23, 2015, in Adair Circuit Court, Adair Judicial Building, 201 Campbellsville Street, Columbia, KY, which requests that Judge Judy Vance order that Mayor Curtis Hardwick be prohibited from conducting himself as Mayor of Columbia, giving the following grounds:
- "This Court previously heldthat the election conducted on November 4, 2015, was void.
- "Since said election was determined to be void and CHurtis Hardwick neither appealed said decision nor filed a Supersedeas Bond, he is not entitled to continue to hold the Mayoral Seat of the City of Columbia
- "Curtis Hardwick acts as Mayor of Columbia are void and Curtis Hardwick is endangering the City of Columbia by continuing to act as Mayor."
The case is also now before the Kentucky Court of Appeals, which has not yet posted a date for a hearing. The appeal was filed by the Adair County Board of Elections, which, Attorneys George and Spalding say, in a brief filed for Appellees, Ben Arnold, et al, that the Adair County Board of Elections has no standing in the case, stating that neither the City of Columbia nor Curtis Hardwick filed an appeal.
