Dickson attorney Mitchell B. Dugan filed a lawsuit last week asking a local court to overrule his disqualification as candidate for Dickson Municipal Court judge, the Tennessean reports. The Dickson County Election Commission last month upheld its disqualification of Dugan, saying he failed to meet the one-year city residency requirement to run for office. Nashville attorney Jason D. Holleman, representing Dugan, argued that he is entitled to a writ of mandamus, requiring the local election commission to add his name to the Aug. 7 ballot. The parties are scheduled to appear June 19 in Dickson County Chancery Court.
