Today, the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas has issued a decision in the Department of Labor’s lawsuit seeking to nullify APFA’s January 2016 officers’ election and to require a re-run election under the Labor Department’s supervision.
The court found that the Labor Department’s position in the case was justified and has granted the relief requested by the department, thereby nullifying the results of the election and directing the conduct of a re-run election under the Department’s supervision.
The timing and details of that court-ordered re-run election must be worked out with the Labor Department over the coming weeks, and therefore are unknown at this time. Once those matters are settled, members will of course be notified accordingly. The current National Officers will remain in place with their full authority under the APFA Constitution until the court-ordered re-run election has taken place.
