A federal judge on Tuesday rejected an attempt to overturn the legislation that cleared the way for Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and most other city elected officials to seek a third term this fall.
The measure — which the City Council passed in October and Mr. Bloomberg signed on Nov. 3 — revised a two-term limit that was twice affirmed by referendums in the 1990s. It set off intense anger among many voters, who charged that the mayor had disregarded their will.
In a 64-page opinion, Judge Sifton rejected the claim that the mayor and the Council, in replacing the two-term limit with a three-term maximum, infringed on the rights of voters who had twice affirmed the two-term limit.
That's nice isn't it? The voters vote in term limits and they make legislation overturning them....
