Tennessee: Judge stops recall election against Chattanooga mayor
A Tennessee Judge ruled that the recall against Chattanooga Mayor Ron Littlefield cannot go forward. Ir seems like the judge has two separate parts to his ruling. One is that the city failed to adopt a new charter, making Tennessee state law applicable -- the state has a higher signature requirement. Also, the judge claimed that the city couldn't take a two step process, but had to use Tennessee's three step recall.
