Judicial Review of Article IV, Section I of the County Charter

On March 1st, 2018 the Supreme Court of the State of Firestone held a hearing regarding the Stapleton County Charter, in particularity Article Four, Section One. An argument was made that said section conflicted with a state law, A Bill to Establish the Stapleton County Court. The main issue being that Article IV, Section I states, “… Those judges shall be nominated and confirmed by the county council by simple majority vote.” This was determined to be a clear contradiction of the aforementioned bill, which states, “All Members of the Stapleton County Court must be nominated by the Stapleton County Executive and confirmed of, with a simple majority, by the Stapleton
County Council.” With this, the court decided unanimously to strike down Article IV, Section I of the County Charter for contradicting state law. The court also encourages the County Government to fix this article to be within the confines of its upper government.
