Gov. Doug Ducey will have an unprecedented opportunity to stack the Arizona Supreme Court with his own appointments before his first term is halfway finished after signing legislation adding two new justices to the bench.
Ducey on Wednesday signed HB2537, which expands the state’s highest court to seven. The governor will make the appointments, which has led Democrats and other critics to decry the legislation as a “court-packing” bill.
