Cert petition filing

No On B chair Tom Moore is filing a petition for certiorari with Maryland’s highest court, the Court of Appeals. The petition asks the Court to take the case directly and bypass the Court of Special Appeals.

On the merits, the petition asks the Court of Appeals to decide whether (1) the lower court erred in allowing alterations to be made to petition entries by third parties long after the voter had signed the petition page, and (2) whether the lower court erred in applying the “substantial evidence” rule to the proceedings.
