Arizona Supreme Court
By Stacey Barchenge and Sasha Hupka || The Arizona Republic
Former Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake has one argument left to make in her legal challenge to the results of her November election loss.
Earlier this week, the Arizona Supreme Court rejected six of Lake’s seven claims, which other judges already had dismissed.
But on one count, an assertion that Maricopa County violated ballot signature verification laws, the court found a county judge used the wrong legal reasoning in his dismissal and should consider the issue again. The Supreme Court did not evaluate the claim on its merit, only on the legal justifications offered by lower courts.
Here, we’ll break down that single issue and what’s next for the case that was given extended life by the Supreme Court.
