One last day in court for State Sen. Kim Brimer.
The 2nd Court of Appeals in Fort Worth is scheduled to hear oral arguments in the lawsuit filed by Texas Sen. Kim Brimer, R-Fort Worth, to keep Democratic challenger Wendy Davis off the November ballot.
Both side have submitted briefs outlining their positions. The court is set to hear oral arguments on Sept. 18 at 9:30 a.m.
Judges are not bound to any timetable for rendering a decision. The court already let pass a deadline for ineligible candidates to be removed the ballot.
What happens if this court rules Davis is ineligible, given that the deadline has passed?
Last week, a spokesman for the Texas Secretary of State said that candidates can still be declared ineligible before voters hit the polls in November, but that if an ineligible candidate wins a race that seat would be left vacant pending a special election.
