State GOP not giving up attempts to evade sanctions tied to lawsuit

They’ve lost big in court. Twice.

But the Arizona Republican Party isn’t giving up its efforts to evade sanctions for filing what judges have called a baseless and politically motivated lawsuit attacking election processes Maricopa County used during the November 2020 election that saw then-President Donald Trump go down in defeat.

The state GOP now wants the state Arizona Supreme Court to overturn lower court rulings that found the lawsuit it filed just after the election was pursued in bad faith. The decisions left the party and its lawyers on the hook for nearly $27,000 in legal fees the Arizona Secretary of State’s office racked up defending the case.

They argue that if the lower court decisions stand it will have a chilling effect on anyone’s ability to sue over election issues.
