The Arizona State Bar has dismissed complaints against nine lawyers who represented President Donald Trump’s campaign, the Republican Party or its supporters in challenging the results of last year’s election.
Several other attorneys filed the complaints, charging that the lawyers behind a flurry of litigation disputing President Joe Biden’s victory here or aspects of the election process had violated professional standards by filing frivolous cases with demonstrably false information. All of the election challenges were dismissed, in many instances after the judges themselves lambasted the allegations as meritless.
The complaints named 21 lawyers and the state Supreme Court appointed Lisa Daniel Flores, a retired superior court judge and a former state elections director, to review them.
The bar confirmed on Monday it had dismissed the charges against four attorneys — Thomas Basile, Brett Johnson, Kory Langhofer and Eric Spencer — who were involved at different points in representing the Trump campaign and state and national Republican parties in one lawsuit against election officials.
