A hearing on a plea to jurisdiction that could dismiss the election contest filed by Rey Ortiz, candidate for 92nd District Court, and Marla Cuellar, candidate for County Court-at-Law No. 8, is scheduled for today.
Attorneys for Omar Maldonado, who won the race for County Court-at-Law No. 8, and Luis Singleterry, who came out on top in the 92nd District Court race, filed motions for a plea to jurisdiction asking that the case be dismissed.
“Not a single voter has been identified as casting an improper vote (or that such improper vote was in favor of Contestee),” Maldonado’s motion states. “Nothing in the pleadings affirmatively indicate that anything improper occurred in this race.”
