Gate City mayor and town council seek summary judgment in election case

The Kingsport paper reports here ("Gate City Town Council asks court to nullify May 4 election," 7/11/04) that the Mayor and Town Council for Gate City have filed a motion for summary judgment in the election contest case, "asking the court to rule that the election is invalid, declare the mayoral election void, and order the resulting vacancy to be filled by special appointment under provisions of the Code of Virginia." The plaintiff's lawyer, in opposition, wants the Court to declare his client the outright winner, instead of allowing for a special appointment.
