|Description||The Utah Supreme Court on Thursday reversed a judge's ruling in the Salt Lake County mayor's race, a move that reinstates Republican Ellis Ivory as a candidate for mayor of Utah's most populous county. |
The court said a note produced by former Republican candidate Nancy Workman substantially complies with Utah election law. The note from Workman's doctor said the strain of fighting criminal charges against her and campaigning for re-election were causing a strain that disable her from continuing as a political candidate.
The Supreme Court order was issued about two hours after the five justices heard the case, and was issued without elaboration, the judges said, because Election Day is so close. The order said a written opinion would follow. That note cleared the way for Ivory, a popular Salt Lake valley businessman, to elevate himself from write-in to ballot candidate.
