Massachusetts: Townsend Selectmen recall halted by judge
The recall election against Selectmen Cindy King and Gordon Clark, scheduled for June 19, has been stopped by a judge. No word on what the basis of the ruling, though it would seem that the judge has accepted the argument that the recall was not covered by the malfeasance standard (over failing to support the town and police chief), did not meet the standard. Looks like this may be going to an appellate court.
