Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery launched a fresh appeal this week in a lawsuit he believes could overturn the state’s medical-marijuana law.

This time, though, his office will be going it alone.

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich has chosen to side with Arizona voters.

On Tuesday, Montgomery filed a petition to the Arizona Supreme Court in White Mountain Health Center v. Maricopa County, keeping up a fight he began in 2011.

Former AG Tom Horne, who lost to Brnovich in the 2014 Republican primary election, helped Montgomery by filing with the county as an intervenor and additional defendant in the case.
