Ruel Joyner decision repealed

Happy to announce that Monday night the the decision to disqualify Ruel Joyner from the District 1 City Council race was overturned. It’s not really surprising since the whole premise of the disqualification was pretty flimsy in the first place. What did surprise me was everything the judge had to say about the incident, which we talked about some in class on Tuesday. Talk about laying the smack down. I think maybe the judge was a big unnecessarily harsh regarding Reese. Yeah she was involved in aspects of the case she had no business being involved in, like gathering evidence and all of that, but at the same time nobody told her she was doing anything wrong. It worked out though, now Ruel is back in the race.
