District Judge Robert Blackmon granted a summary judgment filed by State Rep. Sergio Muñoz Jr. on an election contest for the March primaries Monday morning.
Rolando Rios, attorney for Mari Regalado, who filed the contest, had asked for a continuance, arguing that the information his client needs for the case will come to the light in the next few weeks. A grand jury, he said, has requested a forensic analysis of the voting machines used during the primaries. Hidalgo County Commissioners Court placed an item on Tuesday’s agenda to approve $110,000 of the district attorney’s forfeiture funds for the endeavor.
