Lawyers for a recall effort to oust Chattanooga Mayor Ron Littlefield argued this morning in appeals court that a Circuit Court judge had no right to stop a potential recall election.
Jim Folkner, with Citizens to Recall Mayor Littlefield, said the arguments were presented in the Tennessee Court of Appeals in Knoxville.

The mayor’s attorneys gave counter arguments.
Folkner said he expects a decision on whether a recall effort could proceed within the next 30 days.
