Rodriguez appeal update

The next stage of the legal dispute between Rep. Ciro Rodriguez and Henry Cuellar over the primary result will take place on June 24.

A three-judge panel of the 4th Court of Appeals will hear oral arguments on June 24 in the election lawsuit of U.S. Rep. Ciro Rodriguez, who is trying to overturn his Democratic primary loss to Henry Cuellar.

Earlier this week, the appellate court randomly selected three judges to hear the case. They are Chief Justice Alma Lopez, Judge Catherine M. Stone and Judge Paul W. Green.

Oral arguments are expected to take about one hour. The judges will prepare and issue an opinion in the case at a later date, according to a court official.

Cuellar has been certified as the winner by the Secretary of State, though of course that can be changed by the court.
