Supreme Court Rebuffs Special Prosecutor; Attorney General to Appeal

The University of Utah is having student government elections amidst controversy. Apparently the Special Prosecutor filed a grievance against the United party's presidential nominee, the Elections Committee unanimously ruled her ineligible on the grounds that she wasn't really a senior, on appeal the Supreme Court reinstated her by a 3-2 vote, and the Attorney General is appealing in order to clarify eligibility rules.

I really, really, really do not want to know why the U's student government has a special prosecutor, a supreme court, and an attorney to general. I'm going to assume it's a joke that got out of hand and ignore all evidence to the contrary.

(The evidence is in the subscriber-only pages of the Utah Daily Chronicle, for which I refuse to register. You'll just have to trust me.)

[Edit: Changed "Rebukes" in title to more accurate "Rebuffs."]
