Conservative leadership hopeful Jim Karahalios has been disqualified from participating in his party's leadership race for a second time — just two months after he was first removed from the contest over allegations of racism.

The news comes one day after Karahalios won a decision in Ontario Superior Court that said the four-person committee of Conservative MPs that ousted Karahalios from the race in March didn't have the authority to do so.

In that ruling, Justice Paul Perell ruled that only the party's Leadership Election Organizing Committee (LEOC) had the authority to remove a candidate from the race.
