Chancellor Overturns Election, Rules that Millington Referendum Passed (Court Order attached)

As we earlier hoped and predicted in previous blog posts here and here, the Chancery Court today overturned the Election Commission’s initial certification and finding that the recent Millington Sales Tax Referendum failed.  The Court further declared that after accounting for the unlawful votes that were cast during the election, the Referendum did, in fact, actually pass.

The Memphis Commercial Appeal report is here, and includes the following quote from Wiseman Bray PLLC attorney, Lang Wiseman:

“Our task here was to make sure that justice was done for this particular election and to make certain that the right result was obtained based on a lawful vote.”
