Appeals Denied.

March 2nd, 2012

We’re hearing from several sources that the Elections Committee denied the appeals.  No official announcement from the appellants or the Committee.

If true, the appellants will have 5 days to file an appeal with the J.B.

Update: Sorry for the delay in updating the post to note the rumour was confirmed.

Update: CKDU did interviews with Beale before his appeal was denied.

Update:The Elections Committee has posted their reasons for denying the two appeals

    Well, not a surprise here.

    Not often a board that levies fines is going to overturn them, IF this is true then the JB is going to have some fun on their hands.

    Looks like smear campaigns are all the rage this season. Or is it *alleging* smear campaigns?

    Henry :

    Actually, the provision requiring that appeals be first made to the E.C. was in response to the last time an appeal was made to the J.B., where the E.C. explicitly said they would have overturned their own decision in light of new information, if there was any procedure for doing so. They also implied that if they had the ability to revisit one of the other charges, they might have reduced the fees. The Constitution was modified to give the E.C. a chance to re-examine the information, a faster and less formal process to revisit their decisions in light of any new information.

    (That’s not to say that you’re not right as a general rule; by and large, given the same information, the same people will make the same decision. Certainly my anecdotal evidence does not disprove this general rule, but I do think the E.C. is a special case.)
