CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -- The lawsuit filed by former Chattanooga City Councilman Peter B. Murphy against the Hamilton County Election Commission has been dismissed.

Motions to Dismiss were filed by both the Hamilton County Election Commission and Yusuf Hakeem, and were granted by Chancellor Judge Frank Brown III Monday.

The controversy stems from the March elections, where the Chattanooga City Council District 9 race ended closely, and several write-in ballots ultimately providing the win to Hakeem.
