Griffen recuses from lawsuit over voter initiatives

Posted By on Fri, Oct 18, 2013 at 10:29 AM

Circuit Judge Wendell Griffen has recused from hearing the lawsuit challenging the new state law that imposes additional  burdens on petition campaigns for initiatives and referendums. He said he'd worked with one of the plaintiffs, Neil Sealy, on social justice initiatives. (Just last week, they participated in a group that visited U.S. Rep. Tim Griffin's office to encourage to stop backing the government shutdown as he tried to kill the Affordable Care Act.)

The case was reassigned to Judge Mary McGowan.
