Texas: Floresville recall apparently killed by judge
A Senior Judge apparently killed the recall effort against Floresville Mayor Sherry Castillo and councilmen Daniel Tejada and Juan Ortiz. The claim is that the petition should have been filed earlier to get on the May 7 ballot -- though in the brief write-up I've seen, it doesn't mention the council's filibuster of the recall. The recall wouldn't be held on Election Day in November because the seats are up for election the same day (though a Michigan State House recall had that occur once before in 2008). Hopefully, we'll see more info on this -- Texas' courts have not been friendly to recalls.
