LAWSUIT-JUDICIAL RACE
Appeals court rules in favor of senior judge seeking re-election to bench

ASHLAND, Ky.


The Kentucky Court of Appeals has issued a ruling in favor of an eastern Kentucky judge seeking re-election.

The Independent reports the appeals court on Wednesday overturned a lower court's decision that Marc I. Rosen wasn't a valid candidate in the election due to a new state law.

Rosen filed suit over the legislation, saying it deprives him and a few other senior-status judges from running for office. Rosen filed for Boyd Circuit judge despite the law, which prescribes a five-year term for senior judges and prohibits them from becoming candidates for office during that time period. Previously, the judges committed to working 600 days.

Rosen argued that he completed his 600 days before his five-year term ended on January 31. The primary filing deadline was January 28.
