FINAL UPDATE: 3:53 PM
George T. Maier's effort to stay in the running to be appointed by the Stark County Democratic Party Central Committee (SCDPCC) may be in big trouble.
The SCPR learned yesterday that Swanson/Darrow attorney Greg Beck was in the process of putting together a Motion for a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) and; alternatively, "for ancillary injunctive relief, "expedited" ... (emphasis added).
Today the motions got filed.
As soon as the documents are made available on the Supreme Court online docket, readers of the SCPR can depend on The Report to make summaries available.
ACTUAL REQUEST FOR TRO (UPDATE: 2:13 PM)
THE ENTIRE MOTION (UPDATE: 2:21 PM)
MEMORANDUM OF LAW (KEY PROVISIONS)
INTENT OF SCDP-CC TO ALLOW MAIER TO RE-APPLY
NO NEW VACANCY, NO NEW QUALIFICATION DATE
FAILURE OF SUPREME COURT TO ISSUE "INJUNCTIVE RELIEF" WOULD LIKELY RESULT IN "NEW" QUO WARRANTO ON MAIER 2ND APPOINTMENT
SWANSON/DARROW MEET CRITERIA TO QUALIFY FOR A TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER
JUSTIFICATIONS OF MEETING CRITERIA
LIKELIHOOD OF SUCCESS ON MERITS OF CLAIM
SWANSON/DARROW STAND TO SUFFER IRREPARABLE HARM IF SCDP-CC IS NOT RESTRAINED FROM PROCEEDING ON IN INCLUDING MAIER
GRANTING OF INJUNCTIVE RELIEF WILL NOT HARM THIRD PARTIES
PUBLIC INTEREST WOULD BE SERVED BY SUPREME COURT ORDERING INJUNCTIVE RELIEF AND THEREBY ENSURE THAT "A QUALIFIED SHERIFF" IS APPOINTED BY THE STARK DEMOCRATS ON DECEMBER 11TH
