The Arizona Supreme Court on Tuesday declined to entertain the case of a group of anonymous voters who wanted to toss out the past two statewide general elections, depose the officeholders elected in them and install themselves as temporary leaders.
The state’s highest court, in its ruling, said there was “no legal basis for the relief requested” by the group of 20, who had asked that their names be sealed for security reasons.
The court also said it found no legal basis to keep the names of the 20 people who filed the pleading from public view, citing its open records policy.
The Arizona Supreme Court said the group had until 5 p.m. Monday to file a pleading explaining why their names should remain shielded from public view.
Daniel Wood was the 2020 Republican candidate for Congress representing District 3.
Daniel Wood, an unsuccessful 2020 Congressional candidate and designated spokesperson for the group, did not immediately return a request for comment from The Arizona Republic.
An email sent from an address included with the filing said the group was “crafting a response.”
