Bernice Brooks, represented by Carrollton attorney Gary Bunch, filed the motion Friday. Coweta Judicial Circuit Chief Judge Allen B. Keeble signed the order.
"The Court, for good cause shown and respondents' consent, grants the motion and stays the election board's decision to remove Mrs. Brooks as a candidate for the Carroll County School District 1's board seat," reads the order signed by Keeble.
Brooks also filed an appeal Friday with the court, which will be the topic of a hearing later this week, the order reads.
Bunch said the hearing would most likely be today between 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. It will be held at the Coweta County Judicial Center in Newnan.
The motion asked for an expedited hearing on her petition for a writ of certiorari, or appeal. According to the order, the court has held a telephone conference with the parties' attorneys, Bunch and Nathan Lee, a Newnan attorney who is representing the Carroll County Board of Elections and Registration.
Brooks was disqualified in a special hearing last Tuesday after it was discovered her house is in a different district than the district she was running to represent. While the majority of Brooks' Villa Rica property can be found in District 1, her home and street address are actually in District 3 because of a technical error.
Carroll County Schools attorney Cynthia Daley, at the hearing Tuesday, said a "dot" symbolizing Brooks' home was put in the wrong place: Brooks lives at 760 Bailey Brooks (formerly Reed) Road, but the dot was placed at 760 Edge Road, about a mile away, by mistake.
