The challenger in the 15th Ward aldermanic race heads to court Monday to contest the runoff election results.

Candidate Raymond Lopez lost to incumbent Toni Foulkes last Tuesday. Lopez is now raising questions because 10 percent of the precincts came back with zero votes counted, and Lopez was favored to beat Foulkes.

Foulkes took 69 percent of the vote to Lopez's 31 percent.
