The Clarion-Ledger has a preliminary story up on Judge Winston Kidd's decision from earlier today reinstating Latrice Westbrooks to the ballot in the 2nd District Court of Appeals race. Westbrooks told the Clarion-Ledger that she has signed a lease to move into the district, which should make any further litigation of the matter moot.
The lawyers in the audience will be familiar with mootness, which is the opposite of ripeness. And ripeness is what we discussed earlier in the day.... Heck, I even touched on standing earlier. Never thought I'd blog so much about justiciability in one day.
Congratulations to David McCarty, Ramel Cotton, and P.J. Lee on winning the hearing this morning before Judge Kidd.
