The U.S. District Court will be the court to rule whether Carl Lewis will be allowed to run for State Senate. The State Supreme Court ruled that it will not hear the case and now the federal court will make a ruling. Lewis is being challenged on his residency. The state has a four-year residency requirement, and Lewis voted in California in 2009, though owned a house in both states over the past four years. His name has been allowed to be placed on the primary ballot, but he may not be allowed to run.
