The Working Families Party and New Yorkers Together are due in the state appellate division on November 1 after an order to appear was signed today by Appellate Justice Jeffrey Cohen.
The two groups are being challenged by the state GOP and Nassau State Senator Kemp Hannon for allegedly violating Election Law Section 14-107 (independent expenditures).
State Supreme Court Justice Daniel Palmieri refused to sign the order to show cause and dismissed the petition sua sponte. Justice Palmieri’s decision begins at page 24 of the transcript. The two political organizations are supporting Democratic candidates for state senate.
