Judge denies recall organizers' appeal

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) – A Chancery Court judge has ruled against an appeal in the efforts to recall Mayor Ron Littlefield.

The ruling released Tuesday by Judge Jeff Hollingsworth denied the arguments made by recall organizers that the Chancery Court did not have jurisdiction and that Mayor Littlefield did not have a standing to file for an injunction.

In September, Mayor Littlefield filed a lawsuit, asking a judge to stop efforts to recall him. Chancery Judge Jeff Hollingsworth agreed with the mayor and deemed the recallers didn't have enough signatures to move forward with the recall.

The recall organizers appealed, arguing that the Chancery Court didn't have the authority to hear the preemptive lawsuit from the mayor.
