NEW ORLEANS - A judge has ruled that former city councilwoman Cynthia Willard-Lewis cannot run in the upcoming race for the council District E seat.

The challenge against Willard-Lewis, who represented District E from 2000 to 2010, was based on term limits.

The New Orleans city charter states that anyone "who has served as a council member representing a council district for more than one and one-half terms in two consecutive terms shall not be elected as a councilmember representing a council district for the succeeding term."
