Chattanooga Mayor Ron Littlefield seeks rehearing in ouster case

Chattanooga Mayor Ron Littlefield has asked the Tennessee Court of Appeals to rehear a case the court dismissed last week.

Attorneys for Littlefield argue that the court’s dismissal “misapprehended” facts that were agreed on by all the parties to the case, i.e., whether the Hamilton County Election Commission had already voted to conduct the recall under the city charter rather than state law.

The petition also argues that the trial court may issue a declaratory judgment against an election commission in a situation like the one Littlefield faced.

If the Court of Appeals denies the rehearing, Littlefield can appeal the dismissal to the Tennessee Supreme Court. His attorney, Hal North, said such a move appeared likely.

At this point in time the only reason he can have to appeal this would be because he plans to run for something else. I think he really believes that he will be the metro Hamilton County Mayor one day.

Remember now, this is a man that called a local judge to let her know what his desires were for the outcome of a hearing. In his eyes he is incapable of wrong doing. Everyone should just jump on board his train, sit down and shut up.
