Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz will be holding a press conference Thursday morning with her attorney, Wesley Horton, to talk about the long anticipated lawsuit regarding her eligibility to run for attorney general.
The campaign’s spokesman declined to offer any details and said that all the questions will be answered by Bysiewicz and Horton tomorrow at 11 a.m.
When Attorney General Richard Blumenthal released his legal opinion on Feb. 2 he said Bysiewicz’s specific qualifications regarding the 10 years of active legal practice should be left up to the courts. But at the time Bysiewicz said she thought Blumenthal’s opinion validated her position that she is qualified.
Over the past few weeks, Democratic Party Chairwoman Nancy DiNardo has been talking to lawyers to find out if the state party could challenge the matter on Bysiewicz’s behalf.
“I’m concerned about the delegates at the convention and how they will feel with the status of her qualifications, which still aren’t clear,” DiNardo has said.
It’s unclear who Bysiewicz will be suing in seeking the court’s opinion.
