Sophomore Will Hopping, who filed a complaint against student body president Maurice Grier on Feb. 26, filed an appeal today with the UNC Student Supreme Court, alleging the Board of Elections did not give a fair hearing.
The original decision by the BOE in Hopping v. Grier awarded the Grier campaign four points for three technology violations and one false start violation.
The appeal requests Hopping v. Grier and Muriuki v. Adkins be re-heard by the Student Supreme Court — and that Paul Kushner, chairperson of the UNC Board of Elections, and Luke Cullifer, the student solicitor general, be removed from office.
The original decision by the BOE in the Muriuki v. Adkins hearing awarded the Adkins campaign one point for one false start violation.
The appeal said Kushner and Cullifer showed bias toward Grier before the hearing took place on March 3.
