Alabama: “Judge blocks Democrats from holding election for chair Saturday”

Montgomery County Circuit Judge Greg Griffin issued a temporary restraining order today blocking a faction of the state Democratic party from holding elections for party chair and first vice chair on Saturday.
An attorney representing the party members who planned the elections has filed a notice of appeal to the state Supreme Court and said he expects the order to be lifted by Saturday morning.
Attorneys representing party Chair Nancy Worley and others who filed the lawsuit to block the meeting said the party would be thrown into “utter chaos” if the meeting proceeds, partly because it could result in more than one person being recognized as party chair.
