Court nixes recall of Carty Finkbeiner
COLUMBUS (AP) – The state Supreme Court on Monday blocked from the November ballot a planned vote on
whether to recall Toledo Mayor Carty Finkbeiner.
The high court, by a 4-3 vote, ruled that the deadline of two months before the election for the printing
of absentee ballots would not give Finkbeiner enough time to challenge recall petitions.
The justices cited a previous case in which a court ruled that the proximity of an election would not
give one of the parties an adequate legal remedy because the appeals process could last well past the
The high court also said the Lucas County Board of Elections disregarded applicable law when it rejected
Finkbeiner’s protest that petitions were invalid because they lacked a mandatory statement that election
falsification is a fifth-degree felony.
Earlier this month, Finkbeiner announced he will not seek re-election to a fourth term. If the recall
vote had been successful, the Democratic mayor would have been removed from office for the final few
weeks of his term.
