Politics Pollet’s Lawsuit Dismissed by Judge
posted by June 25 at 16:11 PMon
Gerry Pollet—the 46th District candidate whose supporters sued to have his opponent, Scott White, removed from the August primary election ballot after White attempted to withdraw from the race, then changed his mind—lost his challenge in King County Superior Court this morning. Pollet wanted to prove that King County Elections officials had not told the truth when they said White’s faxed withdrawal came in five minutes late (and wasn’t received until the next morning), and that they reinstated him for other reasons. That claim was rejected in Superior Court by Judge John P. Erlick.
