    "BEVERLY HILLS - A hearing is scheduled for today in a Sacramento courtroom in Beverly Hills Mayor John Mirisch’s lawsuit to force state and county election officials to place his name on the June primary ballot in the race for the open 26th Senate District seat.

    Mirisch was contacted by state Republican leaders last week on the eve of March 12 deadline to file for the seat because no other Republican had, according to The Beverly Hills Courier.

    Mirisch, who was in Washington meeting with members of Congress about Beverly Hills’ attempts to stop tunneling under Beverly Hills High School for the Metro Purple Line extension, faxed his campaign papers to the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk March 12, then sent them by overnight mail and they were received the following day, according to The Courier.

    Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk Dean C. Logan notified Mirisch that Secretary of State Debra Bowen would not allow Logan to accept Mirisch’s faxed candidacy papers, despite Logan’s willingness to do so, according to the lawsuit filed in Sacramento County.

    Both Bowen and Logan routinely accept election documents by fax or uploading, according to the lawsuit.

    The lawsuit was filed in Sacramento because the court has jurisdiction over election matters, according to the Sacramento-based legal firm of Bell, McAndrews & Hiltachk, LLP, which is representing Mirisch.

    Bowen, Logan and 100 unidentified individuals are defendants in the suit.

    There was no response to attempts seeking responses from the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk and Secretary of State’s offices seeking responses.

    The 26th Senate District covers portions of the Westside and South Bay. The seat is being vacated by Sen. Ted Lieu, who is running for the congressional seat of retiring Rep. Henry Waxman."
