MONTROSE, Pa. -- A judge in Susquehanna County has ruled on a heated dispute between county officials and four residents who want to run for county commissioner.

The group, known as the "Bootstrap Campaign," claimed incumbent commissioners and their staff intentionally tried to keep them off the May ballot citing errors in their nomination petition.

The judge says all candidates can remain on the primary ballot in Susquehanna County.
