(Disclosure: Rose Law Group represents Ann Siner of My Sister’s Closet and Judge John Buttrick in their litigation efforts against 208.)
A Scottsdale businesswoman is taking on the newly voter-approved proposition that adds an income tax surcharge to wealthy wage earners to fund public education.
Ann Siner, CEO and founder of My Sister’s Closet, headquartered in Scottsdale, and retired Maricopa County Superior Court Judge John Buttrick were to announce plans to file a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of Proposition 208.
Although their joint press conference was to be held after the Progress’ print deadline Friday, an announcement about it called Proposition 208 “the largest tax increase in state history that disproportionally impacts job creators such as Siner.”
Buttrick, a Harvard Law graduate, also was a federal magistrate.
They are being represented by Rose Law Group in Scottsdale, which said the suit would be filed Dec. 1.
