Appeals Court affirms ruling of Circuit Court in Cave City mayor's election

GLASGOW — The Kentucky Court of Appeals has affirmed the Barren County Circuit Court ruling that the November 2010 Cave City mayor's election results should be tossed.

After hearing oral arguments Monday, the appeals court ruled Barren County Judge Phil Patton had reached the correct conclusion in his initial ruling that there was sufficient evidence indicating no candidate for the position of Cave City Mayor "could be judged to have been fairly elected."

Furthermore, the appeals court agreed with Patton's ruling that there was not sufficient evidence to suggest incumbent Mayor Bob Hunt violated corrupt practices act prior to the election.

"Accordingly, the judgement setting aside the results of the Nov. 4, 2010 election for the office of mayor of Cave City ... is in all respects affirmed," the ruling from the appeals court read.
