Two New Suits Filed with J-Council
I filed two election’s related suits recently with the J-Council.
The first is against the Elections Council and it argues that they are violating Article II.I.A of the ASUC Constitution by not tabulating the votes of the election.
The Constitution clearly states that executive officers must be sworn in by the start of summer sessions, which falls on May 24th of this year. Title 4 Article16.1 of the Association’s by-laws is preventing that swearing-in from happening. We are asking that the by-law be declared null and void and that a writ of mandamus be issued to compel the Elections Council to the tabulate the votes of the spring election of April 2004 at the earliest possible moment before the deadline.I filed this suit on behalf of my party, BEARS-United.
The second suit I filed on my own and it is against the current Executives Officers, and in particular Kris Primm for the Executive Order he issued extending his own term and the terms of his fellow execs.
1. Article II.II.C of the Constitution permits the President of the Association to issue Executive Orders for the purpose of taking “actions which are urgent and necessary to maintain the functioning of the A. S.U.C. until the Senate can again meet.”
I asked the council to issue an emergency preliminary injunction for this one, I should know sometime soon if that request has been approved.
