Herb Lux loses lawsuit
A U.S. District Court judge dismissed today Spotsylvania County resident Herb Lux’s lawsuit against the State Board of Elections.
You can read about the lawsuit here.
Lux filed suit because the Board of Elections rejected the petitions he submitted to run in the 7th Congressional District. State law does not require a candidate for the House of Repsentatives to live in the district he or she is running for, but the person who collects the petitions must be a resident of that district.
Lux gathered most of his 1,220 signatures, and he lives in the 1st District.
Today, Judge Henry E. Hudson upheld a motion to dismiss filed by Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli.
