Michigan: Leoni Township Supervisor who survived recall vote now facing ouster attempt in court due to failure to re-swear in

Supervisor Howard Linnabary (R), who survived a recall vote on election day while two other board members went down to defeat, is now being threatened with an ouster lawsuit after Linnabary did not reswear in following the recall vote.

Township Clerk Mark Carpenter (who won office in the recall) filed the lawsuit, with the township attorney representing Carpenter.

The issue was their vote that allowed for a percentage of the $5000 administrative fee for medical marijuana applications to go to directly to the seven board members for the extra work they did in approving the applications. The law has since been changed.

Update: The suit has since been dropped.
