Thursday, the Alabama Supreme Court has ruled in favor of state Representative Craig Lipscomb, R-Gadsden, in the lawsuit that his former Democratic opponent, Jared Vaughn, filed against him during last year’s election.
“We are very happy that this lawsuit is finally over,” Lipscomb said. “It is unfortunate that this frivolous litigation was ever filed and it is even more unfortunate that the time and resources of our courts were wasted.”
Lipscomb was elected in a landslide victory with more than 82 percent of the vote in the November General Election and is currently serving in the Alabama House of Representatives where he represents District 30. District 30 includes parts of Etowah and St. Clair Counties.
