The state’s largest electric utility may have outmaneuvered a utility regulator in the fight over its records about its campaign spending.
Arizona Public Service and Pinnacle West Capital Corp., its parent, have quietly dropped their lawsuit seeking to quash the subpoena issued by Bob Burns for corporate records. APS spokesman John McDonald would not comment on the move.
In response, Burns late Friday filed his own legal action to compel the companies to comply with the subpoena he claims they have ignored.
