A judge overseeing the challenge to the Arizona Senate Republicans election audit has disqualified himself, forcing Monday’s hearing to be rescheduled.
A Maricopa County Superior Court spokesman said Judge Christopher Coury recused himself Sunday.
The hearing had been set for 11 a.m. A new judge will be assigned. The audit, however, will continue.
ABC15 reported Coury removed himself after learning of “The involvement of one attorney whose name appeared on the filings for the first time today,” according to an email to attorneys in the case.
