Rep. Kolubah Drags House of Representatives to Supreme Court Again

 District #10 Representative Yekeh Kolubah

With a record of having won an earlier case against the House of Representatives at the Supreme Court, Montserrado County District #10 Representative Yekeh Kolubah has again dragged the House to the Supreme Court ahead of the day to lift his suspension.  

In a Supreme Court document, Justice-in-Chambers, Associate Justice Joseph Nagbe, cited the Leadership of the House of Representatives to a voir dire (a preliminary conference) following a writ of prohibition filed by Rep. Kolubah.

The writ of prohibition came three days after the Montserrado County lawmaker threatened legal action against the House for not lifting his suspension, claiming that the suspension had elapsed since July 9.

Representative Kolubah was suspended by the plenary of the House of Representatives for thirty days a few weeks ago, with 24 votes for and seven against. 

According to him, he is not excluded from attending special plenary sessions in accordance with their rules, but he has accused his colleagues of reading the rules upside down and not comprehensively analyzing the issues.  

According to the court document in possession of the Daily Observer, the leadership of the House is expected to appear before Associate Justice Joseph Nagbe on Wednesday, July 14, 2021 at 2:00 p.m.

The court document revealed that the leadership of the House of Representatives has also been ordered to stay away from all other proceedings or actions in the matter pending the outcome of the conference.
