A judge in Brooklyn says liberal law professor Zephyr Teachout is eligible to challenge Governor Cuomo in next month’s Democratic primary, dismissing an attempt by Cuomo supporters to kick her off the ballot.

In a decision announced Monday, the judge dismissed a challenge from Cuomo supporters who argued that Teachout didn’t meet the state’s 5-year residency requirement to run and noted that she had a Vermont driver’s license until this spring.

Teachout had insisted that she met the requirement, saying she has lived in New York since taking a job at Fordham University in 2009.

Cuomo supporters could appeal the judge’s decision. The primary is Sept. 9.
