A law professor challenging New York Governor Andrew Cuomo in next month's Democratic Primary is heading to court to defend her campaign against claims that she's not officially a resident of the state.

The legal challenge to Zephyr Teachout's campaign goes before a judge today for the first of what's expected to be a few days of proceedings.

Her opponents claim in court papers that Teachout spent long portions of the past five years in Vermont.

The Fordham University law professor says she moved to New York in 2009 and meets the state's five-year residency requirement. Teachout says she has spent summers in Vermont because her family lives there.
