Genova v. Carbone

Two of New Jerseys most prominent election law experts, Angelo Genova and John Carbone, will face off in a Morristown courtroom on January 8 to decide the November 2005 race for Mayor of Parsippany. Republican Rosemarie Agostini, who lost to Democrat Michael Luther by 39 votes, alleges that as many as 124 voters were either illegally turned away from the polls or voted improperly. The expedited trial was scheduled after a state appellate panel overturned a Superior Court Judge’s denial of Agostini’s challenge. Genova, Luther’s attorney, has asked the state Supreme Court to issue a stay of the appellate decision. Genova is challenging the constitutionality of a state law that permits elections to be challenged. In that effort, he will be opposed by state Attorney General Stuart Rabner.
