LIVINGSTON COUNTY — NYS Supreme Court Justice Stephen Lindley has denied a last minute effort by District Attorney candidate Steve Sessler to block tonight’s Livingston County Republican Party Committee meeting, which has been scheduled to break the tie in the Republican primary.
Information about the motion and the denial came late Thursday from Sessler’s opponent, Eric Schiener, who already has the official endorsement of the party committee going into tonight’s meeting.
“I’m disappointed. People have said he made a pledge that he would not appeal the decision,” said Schiener, referring to the series of decisions by Justice John Ark culminating Wednesday that deadlocked the election. “This action would have endangered the Republican Party’s chances in November and placed absentee military voters at risk of losing the ability to vote.”
