Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo is challenging Fordham Law School Professor Zephyr Teachout's eligibility to oppose him in the Democratic Party primary election for governor. The ground is that she does not meet the New York state constitutional requirements for the office—specifically, that she has not continuously resided in New York for five years prior to the general election. The case is being heard in Kings County Supreme Court by Justice Edgar G. Walker.
