ASHLAND, Kentucky — A former judge who challenged a state law that put into question whether senior judges could run for office in certain circumstances has lost a race for circuit judge.

The Independent (http://bit.ly/10vkQvz) reports that election results Tuesday night showed Marc I. Rosen lost to incumbent Circuit Judge George W. Davis III. According to unofficial results from the Boyd County Courthouse, Davis got 9,158 votes while Rosen received 4,093.

Rosen filed suit over the law after his candidacy for the seat was challenged. He said the legislation deprived him and a few other senior-status judges from running for office.

A Franklin circuit judge recently ruled the law unconstitutional and allowed Rosen to stay on the ballot for the 32nd Judicial Circuit.
