Brentwood Continues Election Commission Lawsuit

The City of Brentwood will ask the Tennessee Supreme Court to hear its appeal in a lawsuit with the Williamson County Election Commission, the Brentwood Homepage reports. Last year, the Brentwood library refused an election commission request to hold early voting during the Republican primary in 2012, citing interference with previously scheduled community group events. The Williamson County Election Commission sued the city of Brentwood to clarify the issue. After the state Appeals Court overturned the decision by Chancery Court Judge Tim Easter that the local Election Commission cannot demand use of a public building, city commissioners voted to continue the lawsuit.
