DescriptionA San Francisco Superior Court judge ruled today that Supervisor Michela Alioto-Pier has the right to run for re-election, rejecting the city attorney's argument that the District Two representative is barred from running again because of term limits.

Judge Peter Busch ruled from the bench that Alioto-Pier's argument that she can seek another four-year term in the November election ''is consistent with the plain language of the (City) Charter.''

A beaming Alioto-Pier said after the ruling that she and her legal and political team '' feel great about it. We felt strongly about the case going in.''

City Attorney Dennis Herrera may appeal the ruling, his spokesman, Matt Dorsey, said outside the courtroom.
