Primary decision soon 

Attorney Van White says his clients, John Lightfoot and Jose Cruz, should learn in the next couple of days whether they can stay on the ballot for State Assembly. Lightfoot and Cruz hope to take on incumbent Assembly member David Gantt in a Democratic primary next month, but the validity of their petitions is being challenged in state Supreme Court by Gantt supporter Ruth Brooks-Ward. | Justice John Ark had White and Christopher Thomas, attorney for Brooks-Ward, back in court on Tuesday to answer a couple of questions regarding Lightfoot's petitions. No new questions were raised about Cruz's petitions, White says. Also attending was county attorney Bill Taylor. | One of the questions had to do with the timing of a certain objection, White says. Ark also wanted to know which of Lightfoot's signatures had been ruled on by the county Board of Elections, White says. The board has ruled that both Lightfoot's and Cruz's petitions are valid, but some of Brooks-Ward's objections are outside the board's jurisdiction. | White says he's encouraged by the way things are going. | "At least Mr. Lightfoot returned to argue another day," he says.
