EL PASO, Texas — Alliance Defense Fund Senior Legal Counsel Joel Oster will be available for media interviews following a hearing Tuesday in which he will argue that a Texas appeals court should not grant El Paso Mayor John Cook’s request to stop a recall election against him and two city council members.

Cook filed suit last year against local Christian ministries and others who circulated recall petitions, but a state judge denied Cook’s request for a preliminary injunction to stop the election in November. The case is set for trial in June.
