Cummings v. Stanley, No. A123743
In plaintiff's action contesting the eligibility of defendants for election to positions on the Alameda County Republican Central Committee under Election Code sections 16100(b) and 16440(a), trial court's dismissal of plaintiff's action is reversed where an election of party central committee members is not a primary election, and thus is governed by a 30-day time limit to file a contest to elections other than primary elections. Therefore, plaintiff timely filed the election contest.
