JUDGE POSTPONES GOODWIN HEARING TO WEDNESDAY

Territorial Court Judge Ishmael Meyers on Monday postponed a hearing into Sen. George Goodwin's lawsuit against the Board of Elections contending absentee ballots should not be counted because the majority contained no postmark to indicate whether they were mailed prior to Nov. 7, election day.
Meyers allowed Goodwin two more days to amend the original complaint despite the objections of attorneys for the Board of Elections. The hearing is now set for 10 a.m. Wednesday.
Goodwin lost his Senate seat to a fellow Democrat, Sen. Lorraine Berry, who finished eighth in the general election but advanced to the seventh position after gaining more than 260 absentee votes.
