Belmont County courts have just granted a motion for the immediate reinstatement of Dan Brown onto Bellaire Village Council.
Judge Nunner ordered Brown’s be restored to his elected seat and also denied the Village of Bellaire‘s Motion for Summary Judgement.
Brown responded to the motion with a statement that reads in part:
“I believe this order shows that elections matter and votes count. Whether it be the Village of Bellaire or any governmental body, you simply cannot vote off or exclude an elected official simply because you do not like the outcome of the vote.”
