The couil reversed and dismissed a 13311,01, Circuit Ccurl decision vacating the Municipal Court bench in Rogers. The original suit was filed last June 21 by ProseriUinK Attorney Jeff Duly following a lengthy mixup in the Rogers court The incident began when the Rogers City Council created the court and attorneys of the county elected EH Leflar as judge. Leflar, in turn, declared Ihe ordinance unconstitutional and abolished his oflicc. Mayor J. Prank Smith, however, claimed the bench, and Duty filed suit asking that the office, be declared vacant. Duty's was approved by Circuit Ju<!c'- Ted P. Ccx.sey. The Supreme Court, however held that Smith was right in con- lendins that Ihc prosecuting al- Icrney under the "usurpation slii- tutc" lacked Ihc authority to re-originate the .suit. The court said the law applied only to county officers e,nd that municipal officers are "Ot county officers and llml municipal officers are not officials within the meaning of the usm pillion statute. Instead, ihc court said the should have been .brought » v the- attorney general.
