Appellate Division Will Hear a Challenge to the Special Senatorial Election

In an Order filed late yesterday, and available here, the Appellate Division granted the emergent application of challengers to Governor Christie’s writ of election that scheduled a special primary election in August and a special general election in October to fill the United States Senate seat held by Senator Lautenberg.  The original panel consisted of Judges Grall and Koblitz.  Since a determination was made that the matter should be heard by a three-judge panel, Judge Accurso was added.  Two requests to appear as amicus curiae were made.  The Order directs that motions to appear as amicus curiae be filed by 11 A.M. today, about 45 minutes from now, and that any opposition be filed by 11 A.M. tomorrow.
