Taft Stettinius & Hollister LLP represented Mayor-Elect Treva Hodges defending a Verified Petition for Recount and Election Contest filed by G. Robert Hall.
Robert Hall, the mayor of Charlestown, Indiana, filed for a recount Monday in the election he lost to Treva Hodges by 1 percentage point.
Taft acted as co-counsel and represented Mayor-Elect Hodges on the election contest claims. Following a unanimous decision by the recount commission on Dec. 14 certifying the election results in favor of Mayor-Elect Hodges, the Court dismissed the election contest, with prejudice. Mayor-Elect Hodges will take office on Jan. 1, 2020.
The Taft team was led by Manny Herceg (Picture) and Chou-il Lee.
