Illinois Supreme Court To Hear Emanuel Case

January 25, 2011

The Illinois Supreme Court announced Tuesday that it will hear Rahm Emanuel's appeal of the lower court decision that barred him from the ballot in the Chicago mayoral election earlier this week.

The court will judge the case based on the briefs filed in the appellate case. No additional briefs will be accepted, and no oral arguments will be held.

If the court reverses the appellate court's ruling, Emanuel will remain in the race and reclaim his position as the heavy favorite to succeed Mayor Richard Daley. But if the court upholds the ruling, Emanuel's name will not appear on the ballot for the Feb. 21 election.

Earlier in the day Tuesday, the Supreme Court stayed the appellate court's decision, temporarily keeping Emanuel's name on the ballot while the court considers his appeal.

Opponents have charged that Emanuel is not eligible to run for mayor because he rented out his Chicago home while serving as Pres. Obama's chief of staff. Emanuel had won two previous residency rulings issued by the Chicago Board of Elections and a Cook County Judge.
