Ceoffe seeks injuction on Gross nom

Published by Tim McNulty on .

Pittsburgh City Council special election candidate Tony Ceoffe Jr. is challenging the Democratic committee nomination his opponent Deb Gross won Sunday.

We'll have a full story up on the main website soon, but bascially Ceoffe is seeking an injunction barring Gross from being named the party's nominee, and not seeking another vote by the 100-odd committee people in Patrick Dowd's old district. Ceoffe has already registered as an independent and plans to submit signatures next week to get onto the Nov. 5 ballot no matter what happens in court.

UPDATE: Here's the story.

UPDATE 2: The chair of the county Democrats, Nancy Mills, says she has not seen the complaint but adds that Gross's nomination has already been officially forwarded to the county elections division.

Here's a copy of the complaint:
