Generic courtroom background

The race to win a final spot on the Lehigh County Court of Common Pleas continues to drag out, two months after the November election.

A lawyer for Democratic candidate Zachary Cohen has filed a petition with the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.

They're appealing a state appeals court's ruling made on Monday that 261 undated ballots should not be counted. That ruling was in favor of Republican candidate David Ritter. It overturned a lower court's ruling that the ballots should be counted.

No word on when the latest petition will be taken up.
