On Wednesday, the Arizona Court of Appeals denied the state Senate’s latest attempt to halt American Oversight’s lawsuit for records related to the sham “audit” of Maricopa County’s 2020 election results.
The court granted a limited stay in the Maricopa County Superior Court’s Aug. 2 order for the Senate to begin “immediately” releasing records, but set an expedited deadline for oral arguments for next Wednesday, Aug. 18.
While the limited stay is another delay in much-needed transparency over the so-called audit, the expedited deadline is an important acknowledgment that the case centers on a matter of enormous public interest.
“By allowing the Superior Court to continue proceedings and expediting oral argument in the Court of Appeals, the Arizona judiciary affirmed the urgency of this case,” said American Oversight Executive Director Austin Evers. “We will continue to pursue the public’s right to information related to this fraudulent audit.”
