Knox Wastes No Time on Appeal

Attorneys for Tom Knox, the mayoral candidate who led the charge to knock U.S. Rep. Bob Brady off the May 15 primary ballot, have filed an appeal of the ruling that upheld Brady’s ballot position.

Knox’s attorney, Paul Rosen of Spector Gadon & Rosen, didn’t let the fact that he is currently vacationing in the Caribbean delay the filing of an appeal in In re Nominating Petition of Robert A. Brady. The appeal was received by the prothonotary’s office shortly after noon today.

Both Rosen and Brady’s attorney, Stephen A. Cozen of Cozen O’Connor, have predicted the case would ultimately be decided by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.

Luzerne County Senior Judge Patrick J. Toole Jr. ruled yesterday that Brady’s failure to mention his city and carpenters’ union pensions on financial disclosure forms was not enough to kick him off of the ballot.

The judge said Brady did not have to mention his city pension because it was a governmentally mandated benefit, which the disclosure forms preclude from entry. Toole did say that Brady should have mentioned his carpenters’ union pension, but said it was not a “fatal error” that should knock Brady off the ballot.
