Judge Places Recall Dunleavy Signature Gathering on Hold
A superior court judge has delayed signature gathering for a campaign seeking to remove Gov. Mike Dunleavy from office.
Judge Eric Aarseth issued a stay halting Recall Dunleavy from advancing its efforts, pending a decision from the Alaska Supreme Court.
The judge previously overruled a state Division of Elections decision rejecting the recall application.
Last week, there was some confusion over a stay, when the stay was issued and revoked a day later due to an error in the court system.
Although the ruling halts the recall campaign from moving forward with collecting signatures, both parties agreed to an expedited appeal.
