Quo warranto removed to federal court

The quo warranto action was removed to federal court. On this blog, I have described a quo warranto action filed by an Oklahoma municipality, challenging a rural water district's actions in borrowing money from the federal government despite a state constitutional prohibition against such loans. The municipality has filed a motion to remand the quo warranto action back to state court, along with a motion to certify questions to the Oklahoma Supreme Court. Watch this site for further developments.
