Coleman lawyer expects to appeal

March 21, 2009|Times Wire Reports

A lawyer for Republican Norm Coleman, who is challenging Democrat Al Franken's 225-vote lead in the state's U.S. Senate election, said Coleman would probably lose in a three-judge court and appeal to the state's top court.

A panel of state judges heard closing arguments March 13 over the counting of ballots in the Senate contest.

"Our whole argument was that it was a constitutional argument, and it's an argument suitable for the Minnesota Supreme Court," Coleman attorney Joe Friedberg told radio station KFAN in Minneapolis.
