Judge decides on Dr. Blake lawsuit against Dr Bentley

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Jefferson County Circuit Court Judge Nicole Still has refused to postpone or remove Dr Robert Bentley from next week's gubernatorial election.

Dr Jimmy Blake sought the court action because he claims Bentley violated the state's
Fair Campaign Practices Law. Blake claims Bentley didn't claim contributions made by the AEA.

The judge says the court has no jurisdiction.

Blake can file an election challenge after Tuesday's election. Those proceedings could be heard in
January's Alabama Legislative session.
