Judge Charles Hosack has signed his decision against plaintiff Jim Brannon in Brannon’s challenge to the 2009 municipal election in which he lost to incumbent Mike Kennedy by 3 votes. Hosack signed the order for his ruling for Kennedy Thursday. Which means that Brannon now has 10 working days to file an appeal, a date estimated by Kennedy’s attorney Scott Reed to be Nov. 15. During the trial that lasted from Sept 13-18, Hosack disallowed 3 Kennedy votes and 1 Brannon vote to reduce the margin of victory for Kennedy from 5 on election night to the final margin of 3. Hosack decision here.
Question: Do you think Brannon will appeal Hosack’s decision to the Idaho Supreme Court?
