Supreme Court Concludes March Term
By Ballah M. Kollie

MONROVIA, September 24 (LINA) – After delivering opinions in over 30 cases, the Supreme Court on Friday closed its March Term of Court.

Announcing the closure, Chief Justice Francis S. Korkpor disclosed that in keeping with law, the court will on Monday, October 10, open for the October Term of Court.

Justice Korkpor has accordingly ordered the Clerk of the Court to communicate this to the other two branches of government.

He said although the March Term was difficult, he enjoyed the support of his colleagues on the Bench and all court staff, and prayed that similar solidarity prevails in the court during its October Term.

On the final day, the high court handed down opinions in two cases and dropped from its docket the Alliance for Peace and Democracy (APD) versus the National Elections Commission (NEC) case upon request for withdrawal that followed a compromise in the case by both parties.

The complaint was a “Bill of Information” growing out of an appeal on alleged irregularities in the recount of votes in the 2014 Special Senatorial Election.

It can be recalled that following polling and counting of votes in the 2014 Special Senatorial Election, the APD took exception to the result that declared Stephen H. Zargo winner over its candidate and sued all poll workers and the NEC.

Meanwhile, Chief Justice Korkpor has appointed Associate Justice Sie-A-Nyene D. Yuoh as Justice-in-Chamber for the October Term.

Justice Yuoh takes over from Associate Justice Jamesetta H. Wolokolie who served for the March Term.
