CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) -- The Hamilton County Election Commission has accepted a judge's ruling to block the recall efforts against Mayor Ron Littlefield.

That means the issue will *not* be on the November ballot.

Tuesday, Hamilton County Circuit Judge Jeff Hollingsworth ruled state law trumps city charter when it comes to how many signatures are need to recall an elected official.

The election commission was scheduled to vote on certifying petition signatures today, but the judge's ruling made that unnecessary.
