Status hearing today in Lopez v. Rivera, Weslaco election contest for City Commission seat

Status hearing set for 1:30 today before Judge Menton Murray, Jr.  Judge Murray was appointed as the special judge to hear the case by the 5th Administrative Judicial Region, as required by the Election Code (since the case arises in Hidalgo County, an out-of-county judge is required to sit).  While a visiting judge presides, the case remains in the 370th Dist Ct in Hidalgo County.

Here are news stories by The Monitor and KGBT (VIDEO) reporting on the filing of the lawsuit last month.
