SUPREME COURT OF NEW YORK, APPELLATE DIVISION, SECOND DEPARTMENT
June 11, 1969
IN THE MATTER OF PHOEBE SURGAN ET AL., RESPONDENTS,
THEODORE SILVERMAN, APPELLANT, AND BOARD OF ELECTIONS OF CITY OF NEW YORK, RESPONDENT
In a proceeding to invalidate petitions designating appellant as a candidate in the Democratic Party Primary Election to be held on June 17, 1969 for nomination for the public office of Councilman for the 23d Councilmanic District, Kings County, City of New York, the appeal is from an order of the Supreme Court, Kings County, entered June 9, 1969, which granted the application and enjoined the respondent Board of Elections accordingly.
Christ, Acting P. J., Brennan, Hopkins, Benjamin and Munder, JJ., concur.
In our opinion, the evidence did not warrant the conclusions that fraud permeated the designating petitions or that the candidate participated in the irregularities which may have accompanied the solicitation of signatures.
Order reversed, on the law and the facts, without costs; the designating petitions are adjudged to be valid; and petition in the proceeding dismissed.
