[JURIST] Oral arguments are scheduled to begin Monday morning in the US First Circuit Court of Appeals to decide whether Puerto Rico's Supreme Court or a US District Court has jurisdiction over thousands of disputed ballots cast in the territory. The ballots in question are from Puerto Rico's Nov. 2 gubernatorial race, and all indicate a vote for more than one candidate. Puerto Rico's Election Commission ruled last month that the votes were valid, and the Puerto Rico Supreme Court subsequently ordered a recount, however, a US District Court judge in Puerto Rico has ruled that the votes are to be separated from the recount.
